My mother Doris Bigwood and her family lived in Odessa Street until they were bombed out and moved to Sidcup. My grandfather worked as lighterman in the local docks and was named Walter Edward Bigwood. I believe there were 13 children and their motherâ??s surname was Hunt.
I would love to know if anyone is related or even knew the family. If so, please get in touch.

Post by Leslie Butler: Neate Street, SE5

My Uncle (James Burgess and his wife Lil) used to live on Neate street, we used to come up from Croydon to visit (50 years ago) and play on the canal bridge that was about six houses along, the canal used to be at the back of his house. Used to feel like we were in a Dickens film Oliver Twist. The bridge is still there but nothing underneath as the canal has long gone and so have the houses that used to be on Neate street.

Peckham Rye

Peckham Rye is Cockney rhyming slang for tie (necktie).

Peckham Rye, with a station on Rye Lane, lies in the centre of the shopping district of Peckham in South London.

Peckham Rye itself is an open space in the London Borough of Southwark. The roughly triangular open space with Peckham Rye Common to the north and Peckham Rye Park to the south. The road called Peckham Rye forms the western and eastern perimeter of the open space.

Peckham Rye railway station opened on 1 December 1865 for LC&DR trains and on 13 August 1866 for LB&SCR trains. It was designed by Charles Henry Driver, the architect of Abbey Mills and Crossness pumping stations, who also designed the grade II listed Denmark Hill and Battersea Park stations between here and Victoria.

It was on the Rye in the 1760s that the artist William Blake claimed to have seen visions, including one of a tree filled with angels, bright angelic wings bespangling every bough like stars.

During World War II, part of the Common became a Prisoner of War camp for Italian prisoners of war.
