The Surrey Canal Linear Park

While visiting the Pepys Parks I had noticed a green space behind the row of shops on Grove Street and decided to investigate. A path leads alongside and behind the Community Centre to an open grassy area – and beyond that comes the big surprise – the Surrey Canal Linear Park! The Surrey Canal Linear Park, created by Lewisham Council and opened in mid-2016, is a surprising and delightful new park in Deptford on the line of the former Grand Surrey Canal.
