Garage 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.

    Good Evening
    Some of your drivers very selfish and parking busses on all bus stops around the depot’s when the finished shifts. It’s very disturbing passengers and other busses can’t use bus stops. Also very very dangerous because other vehicles overtaking very fast please do something before something happens worse. This is happening every day around west norwood garage.
    Thank You
