I still keep pressing my spy for information, he's currently disguised as a pot plant in their foyer, grumbling and shaking his leaves at people as they go past and forcing them to take a long walk home rather than take the quick route. If anyone finds any information let us all know, did anyone get...

True, but there is always cycling! Seriously though, public transport is an option you just need to get a bus up to crystal palace then another down to norword, if you are lucky with connections you could do it in half an hour or so. the website http://journeyplanner.tfl.gov.uk will show you the way!

What is the history behind the name of "Jews Walk"

I've wondering for a while, why is the road "Jews Walk" named so, I assume there must be a story, or historical reason as it dosn't sound like a name pulled out a hat.

Anyone know?
