At the back of 10 West Grove Lane on the staircase leading to what was Grove House (now Hamilton House) is a large bath stone slab with an steel circular ring set into the flagstone. This stone can be lifted and underneath is a partially excavated tunnel. The cavity was never excavated when I lived here bit there was an ongoing story of smugglers tunnels and potential links to the Blackheath Caverns. Or perhaps it was just a massive coal shute.

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.

Lewisham

Lewisham is an area within the London Borough of Lewisham in south-east London. It is a major transport hub, lying on the A20 road towards Dover and at the start of A21 to Hastings, with its own bus station, mainline railway station and the southern terminus of the Docklands Light Railway.

The village of Lewisham was originally centred further south around the parish church of St Mary, towards the present site of University Hospital Lewisham. The centre migrated north with the coming of the North Kent railway line to Dartford in 1849, encouraging commuter housing.

Lewisham’s High Street is particularly long and wide for a London suburb. It is home to a daily street market and a local landmark, the Clock Tower, completed in 1900 to commemorate Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee in 1897. The Docklands Light Railway station opened in 1999 on a southward extension from Island Gardens on the Isle of Dogs.
