Ha Ha Road


Ha Ha Road in Greenwich is no laughing matter.

A "ha ha" is a ditch which serves as a boundary between fields or properties. It is designed to be a recessed landscape design element that creates a vertical barrier while preserving an uninterrupted view of the landscape beyond. Ha has are also used in landscape design to prevent access to a garden, for example by grazing livestock, without obstructing views.

There’s also a "ha ha gate" which connects and provides access between the two areas and a "ha ha wall" which shores up the ditch.

The "ha ha" of Ha Ha Road, SE18 still exists. It flanks the Barrack Field of Woolwich Garrison.

Post by Chris: Bell Water Gate, SE18

In the late â??50â??s and early 60â??s we went as children down the cut into the Thames.
Not knowing or understanding better webused to throw stones at floating johnies!
A piece of history like the paddle steamer ferries and looking in on the great mechanical machinery and returning shouting down the underground tunnel.PGk8l
