Description: The famous German composer Felix Mendelssohn wrote a piano piece here on a visit in 1842, inspired by the tranquility of the area around Camberwell.

He described it as a 'song without words' calling it 'Camberwell Green' which became a hit when he later renamed it to Spring Song. Mendelssohn is now regarded as one of the most popular composers of the Romantic era.
