Letting Agents in Honor Oak Park London SE23
Honor Oak Park is a small suburban district located between the London borough's of Lewisham and Southwark.
The vague geographical location of the area, has in the past resulted in many debates over, which local authorities are responsible for implementing projects and schemes in parts of the district.
It is known as a green and leafy area of South London and has a number of allotments and green spaces within it.
One of the most famous is the One Tree Hill allotments, which has played host to many festivals over the years - most notably, the Wassail - a festival held in January in praise of next year's apple crop.
The allotment covers nine acres and holds 70 plots. It is managed by a committee that is responsible for keeping the area clean, creating new plots and restoring derelict ones. It is known for having a large, diverse and thriving membership which helps to plan and organise sustainable farming events in the heart of London.
A nature reserve is also located in One Tree Hill, which is owned and managed by Southwark Council.
It is one of the steepest parts of South London and dominated by trees, woods and open grasslands. One of the most striking things about the area is its dramatic views of the City of London in one direction and its views of Kent in the other.
