    looking south towards Ladywell - think this must have been taken from up the tower of St Saviour's Church.

    The Prince of Wales cinema was where Bright House is now.

    1. Bit of a random one, and please admin delete if not appropriate. I’ve got a friend who finds themselves, thanks to ou benefits system, currently homeless. I’ve got no space at my flat at the moment. Anyone know of anyone looking for house sitter/ with a cheap spare room in localish area? They have stayed at mine before and looked after my dogs while I’ve been and I can totally vouch for their trustworthiness. Please PM me if you have any bright ideas/ might be able to help..

    I'm not sure.

    Street View back to 2008 has similar.

    Brief mention on Ravensbourne Residents website here

    and on Love Catford here

    seems that it was a scaffolding yard

    more about planning application for bloody big hotel on the site (which got refused) here

    thats great, thanks! It is an eyesore tbh and brings the mood down of that whole stretch of road and surroundings

    out of curiosity, had a look at 1950 OS map

    OS map at that time usually showed 'ruins' if it was a bombed site. looks like that corner has never really been built on - part of the site formed road access to the goods / coal sidings at Bellingham Station

    east side of Bromley Road, north of Bellingham Road street view here - it hadn't occurred to me that row had been built in installments like that.

    Would put it in the few years before 1914.

    fairly sure these were the first buildings on the site - 1894 OS map shows fields.

    Can find a reference to Lt Charles Wormull of 235 Bromley Road (maybe the flat above?) who was killed in the 1914-18 war.

    No reference in the 1911 Post Office London Suburbs Directory, but the 1914 issue has Bellingham Terrace -


    So probably slightly later than Edwardian.

    (all above is public domain - I don't do Farcebook, so if you want to bung any of it on there, feel free)

    and :) at "Alfred Turrell and Sons, rustic workers" a bit up the road

    and at 21/22 (243 Bromley Road) still being motor trade, over 100 years on

    The comments talk of there still being a bakers there in the 80s/90s, but called Slatters.

    can't always get 'old maps' to work - and went in search of this while looking for something else

    1916 OS map (ETA - you have to zoom out a bit) shows Bellingham Terrace in its incomplete state (which matches the 1914 directory) - wonder if construction stopped because of the war?

    a moment's reflection -

    67 years ago today, London's last trams ran on the central london - new cross - woolwich - abbey wood routes

    (what's now New Cross bus garage was the site of New Cross tram depot)
