History

The London General Omnibus Company opened an omnibus garage at Norwood in 1909. The original garage structures survived untouched until 1981, when the original garage was closed and the entire site demolished. During this time, the garage allocation was moved to Clapham Garage and did not return until the newly constructed Norwood was opened in 1984.

In the run up to privatisation of London Buses, Enfield Garage was allocated to the South London business unit on 1 April 1989.

Privatisation of the London Bus Network in January 1995 saw the sale of South London, along with its garages to Cowie Group, who rebranded to Arriva London in April 1998.
