History[edit] Toponymy[edit]

A map showing the Catford
Catford
ward of Lewisham
Lewisham
Metropolitan Borough as it appeared in 1916.

The name derives from the place where cattle crossed the River Ravensbourne in Saxon times. [3]It is also said that the name originates from all-black cats, associated with witchcraft, being thrown into the ford to drown during the witch hunts.[citation needed] Catford
Catford
was historically part of Kent
Kent
until 1889, when it was absorbed into the new London
London
County Council, along with the majority of the present day London
London
Borough of Lewisham. Catford
Catford
covers most of SE6 postcode district. The area is identified in the London
London
Plan as one of 35 major centres in Greater London.[2] Built environment[edit]

Town Hall, 1961

Early developments[edit] Broadway Theatre is an art deco building adjoining the town hall. It is a curved stone structure decorated with shields and heraldic emblems and topped with a copper-green spire. It was opened in 1932 as the Concert Hall and is now a Grade II listed
Grade II listed
building. The interior is in art deco style. The last cinema in the borough stood diagonally opposite the theatre until its closure in 2002. Catford
Catford
also boasts a large Gothic police station. In 2006, a large blue pipe sculpture was unveiled outside Eros House, which was another former cinema (The Eros Cinema), and the Lewisham
Lewisham
Hippodrome theatre .[4] The 1960s and 70s had a considerable impact on the architecture of Catford. The old Town Hall of 1875, was replaced by the current Civic Suite in 1968, soon after the merger of the metropolitan boroughs of Lewisham
Lewisham
and Deptford. Laurence House, where many of the Lewisham Council offices are housed, is on the site of old St Laurence's Church. The original Gothic C of E St. Laurence Church was located where Laurence House is today (known as the Catford
Catford
Cathedral), but as part of the urban renewal of Catford
Catford
in the 1960s, the church is now housed in a more modern style building 200 metres down Bromley
Bromley
Road. In Rushey Green the old village water hand-pump from the 1850s survives. At the end of World War II, the 188-bungalow Excalibur Estate
Excalibur Estate
was laid out in Catford, and by 2011 this was the largest surviving prefab estate in Britain. However, it is now planned that all but six of the prefabs will be demolished and replaced by new housing, although many residents voiced their opposition to demolition.[5] Brutalist architecture[edit] A few examples of Brutalist architecture
Brutalist architecture
survive including the Catford shopping centre and Milford Towers, designed by the architect Owen Luder in 1974. The design was to make it the Barbican
Barbican
of the south. Architecture critic Ian Nairn praised Eros House, which is now Grade II listed as:

A monster sat down in Catford
Catford
and just what the place needed. No offence meant: this southward extension of Lewisham
Lewisham
High Street badly wanted stiffening. Now there is a punchy concrete focus ('you know, that funny new building') both close to and at a distance, from the desolate heights of the Downham
Downham
Estate, where it stands straight to the afternoon sun. Rough concrete is put through all its paces, front convex eaves on Sainsbury's to a staircase tower which is either afflicted with an astounding set of visual distortions or is actually leaning. Again, no offence meant. Unlike many other avant-garde buildings, particularly in the universities, this one is done from real conviction, not from a desire for self-advertisement. The gaunt honesty of those projecting concrete frames carrying boxed-out bow windows persists. It is not done at you and it transforms the surroundings instead of despising them. This most craggy and uncompromising of London
London
buildings turns out to be full of firm gentleness.[6]

Current plans put forward by Lewisham
Lewisham
Council are to demolish Milford Towers, as the estate has fallen into disrepair and the land can be better used to meet the needs of local residents.[7] Landmarks[edit]

The Catford
Catford
Cat - a giant statue in Catford
Catford
town centre, depicting a giant cat clawing at the Catford
Catford
Centre sign.

Catford's most prominent landmark is the Catford
Catford
Cat, a giant fibreglass sculpture of a black cat above the entrance to the Catford Centre. This is a small shopping centre, housing Tesco
Tesco
and Iceland supermarkets as well as other high street stores. There is a street market on Catford
Catford
Broadway. Catford
Catford
has several pubs and a variety of non-chain restaurants and cafes. Catford's oldest pub is the Black Horse and Harrow and Karl Marx
Karl Marx
is reputed to have been an occasional patron.[citation needed] The pub has existed since at least 1700[citation needed] though the present building dates from 1897. Between 1932 and 2003, Catford Stadium
Catford Stadium
was a successful greyhound racing track, but was closed and then destroyed by fire in 2005[8] and ultimately demolished to make way for a new housing development. The Catford
Catford
Bridge Tavern is another heritage listed building close to the old dog track; this mock tudor pub burnt down in March 2015, but has since been refurbished and reopened in April 2017.[9] Nearby, is St Dunstan's College. Other than the shows at the Broadway Theatre the main cultural events are Lewisham
Lewisham
Peoples day held in Mountsfield Park. The area was once home to the Catford
Catford
Studios, producing films during the silent era. Catford
Catford
also use to have a cinema diametric to the theatre. Catford
Catford
was also satirised in The Chap
The Chap
magazine in a series called 'A Year in Catford' named after Peter Mayle's best-seller A Year in Provence. The magazine poked fun at Catford's mundanity. Regeneration[edit] Catford
Catford
town centre[edit] Catford
Catford
is a priority area for regeneration in the London
London
Borough of Lewisham.[10] Several key sites around the town centre have been identified for redevelopment - Milford Towers, Catford
Catford
Dog Track, Catford
Catford
Island, The Civic Centre, Lewisham
Lewisham
Town Hall & The "Wickes" site have all been highlighted for significant change in the proposed Catford
Catford
Plan.[11] Previous attempts to regenerate Catford
Catford
have been hampered by various complex issues such as the number of different landowners in and around the town centre. However, in 2010, as a sign of commitment to ensuring a regeneration of the area, the Council seized upon the opportunity to buy Catford
Catford
Shopping Centre, thereby giving it greater influence over future plans. The Council’s aspiration is for the complete redevelopment of the Catford
Catford
Centre and Milford Towers, which would require demolition of both plus the car parks and associated buildings along Thomas Lane. Lewisham
Lewisham
Council are currently working towards a target vacant possession date for the site of late 2015, although this is subject to many factors, including identifying a deliverable scheme, and agreeing commercial terms with the key parties who are, or will be, involved in the redevelopment of the site. In the meantime, £1.5 million has been secured from the Mayor of London's Outer London
London
Fund to make improvements to Catford
Catford
Broadway which would benefit businesses, residents and shoppers and help to maintain the vitality of the town centre during any future redevelopment works. Catford
Catford
Broadway[edit] Catford
Catford
Broadway and Catford
Catford
Market already play a significant role in terms of the local economy. The Council hopes to make substantial changes to the town centre as a whole and, in order to facilitate this, Catford
Catford
Shopping Centre may close for between one and two years. In 2011, the Council successfully obtained £125,000 from Round 1 of the Mayor of London's Outer London
London
Fund to develop designs and carry out feasibility surveys to explore how Catford
Catford
Broadway could provide a better environment for businesses, residents and shoppers. The results of this work formed part of a bid for further Outer London Fund money, and in January 2012 it was announced that just under £1.5 million has been allocated to carry out a series of improvements. The Council is providing approximately £600,000 in match funding. Specific projects include:

a complete refurbishment of the streets, with new lighting and seating, and a brand new, level 'shared' surface that will improve accessibility and resolve issues such as drainage pedestrianising the street while still allowing vehicular access for businesses, market traders and residents living on Catford
Catford
Broadway improving the condition and overall look of a number of shop fronts providing better facilities for the market and attracting new market traders developing a programme of events to attract more shoppers, including a special market on the first Sunday of every month, the Catford
Catford
Supper Club which frequently sold out during its successful summer 2013 run, and the Catford
Catford
Canteen.

The refurbishment of the street began in June 2013 and was completed in 2014. Transport[edit] Rail[edit] Catford

Gunnersbury
in the west. Proposed transport links[edit] Bakerloo line
Bakerloo line
extension[edit] It has been highlighted in the Rail Utilisation Strategy that there should be a capital infrastructure development in the medium term of developing the Bakerloo line
Bakerloo line
from Elephant and Castle
Elephant and Castle
through to Catford. This programme of work is known as the Bakerloo line extension and could start as early as 2020.[citation needed] Docklands Light Railway
Docklands Light Railway
extension[edit] Transport for London
London
(TfL) are currently considering the extension of the Docklands Light Railway
Docklands Light Railway
from Lewisham
Lewisham
to Bromley, with the first phase being from Lewisham
Lewisham
to Catford. So far TfL have not expressed a preferred route, provided detailed plans, or indicated costs and funding. Lewisham
Lewisham
Council has suggested that any route should be underground to reduce physical and visual impact.[citation needed] Education[edit] Local authority maintained schools[edit] The local council maintains Conisborough College and Greenvale School. Independent schools[edit] Catford
Catford
has twoindependent schools, St Dunstan's College
St Dunstan's College
and a small faith school Springfield Christian School. Parks and greenspaces[edit] River Pool Linear Park[edit] The walk follows the River Pool downstream from the Ravensbourne River. The banking has been planted with native trees and shrubs, herbaceous planting, wild flower grassland and wetland marginal planting. The park forms part of the Waterlink Way which forms a significant section of the river from Sydenham
Sydenham
to the Thames. Unlike many of London's rivers, the Pool remains above ground for most of its length. The section of river flows through a linear park from Southend Lane to Catford
Catford
Hill. Riverside habitats include woodland and some of the best neutral grassland in the borough. The adjacent railsides[clarification needed] provide additional habitat, and are included within the site. It is a good place for birdwatching at any time of year, and one of very few sites in Lewisham
Lewisham
where five species of warblers can be seen or heard on a summer stroll. Mountsfield Park[edit] Mountsfield Park
Mountsfield Park
has a wide range of recreational pursuits for the more energetic, including basketball, football and tennis. In the 1920s, Charlton Athletic
Charlton Athletic
played at The Mount (stadium) in the park. There is also a children's playground for the younger visitors. For those who enjoy more passive pursuits the park has ornamental gardens and a bandstand. With its central location and car parking facilities, the park is often used for large events. The Council holds its annual People's Day event here each July, which attracts crowds of over 30,000. Although lower than Hilly Fields the park affords excellent views west over Catford
Catford
to Crystal Palace in the distance. The park has a park users group called Friends of Mountsfield Park that steward the green-space and oversee its management and development. Ladywell
Ladywell
Fields[edit] The park consists of three fields with a river running through them. The park underwent enhancements in 2007/8 to the northern field to divert the river into main area of the field creating a natural space where river dipping and paddling is popular in the summer months. In 2010/11 more enhancements were carried out to the middle and southern fields to open the river up to use and as a result children and adults alike can now access various sections to enjoy the environment, including the kingfishers and the heron. The middle field contains one of the last established rare Dutch Elm trees in London. The park is a key cycling and walking route and popular with joggers and dog walkers. Elements in the park include:

Northern Field: Children's playground, skate park, tennis courts, Nature reserve Middle Field: Adventure playground, water pumps Southern Field: Play area for young children.

Facilities include:

Ball courts, Skate park, Bowling green, Café, Cycle route - Waterlink Way, Dog exercise area, Football pitch, Friends of park group, Green flag, Play area, River, Tennis
Tennis
courts.

Iona Close Orchard[edit] Iona Close Orchard is a fascinating relic of a Victorian garden creating an undisturbed wildlife habitat in the heart of Catford. It remains quite overgrown, but retains some fine old fruit trees. In common with most old orchards, the site is of high nature conservation value. The houses to which it originally belonged date to about 1825. Hidden away behind a few mature ash and Norway maple trees are several fine old fruit trees, apples, pears, plums and a mulberry. Although it has become overgrown, it has remained largely undisturbed, and is therefore a haven for wildlife. Old orchards are generally of high nature conservation value and there is concern that they may disappear. There are a number of uncommon invertebrates which specialise in feeding on dead wood or sap runs on fruit trees. Fruit and nectar also provide food for other foraging insects and birds. Community and voluntary sector[edit] Lewisham
Lewisham
voluntary sector is large and developed, with many significant community and voluntary organisations based within the Catford
Catford
area. Catford
Catford
Society[edit] The Catford
Catford
Society was established in 2014, as a result of residents wanting to come together and advocate for their community and locality, after the successful establishment of the Catford
Catford
Canteen, a pop up weekly restaurant with visiting chefs. The society aims to promote the area as a great place to live, work and study. Rushey Green Community[edit] The Rushey Green Community Project is a four-year programme levering money into the Catford
Catford
locality from central government funds. The area was selected for additional funding as it was identified amongst the 30% most deprived Lower Super Output Areas in the 2011 Indices of Multiple Deprivation (IMD). The programme creates more social capital by match funding both in-kind donations and volunteering time from the local community put back into the area, up to a value of £2,500 per project. Voluntary Action Lewisham[edit] Formed in 1967 Voluntary Action Lewisham
Lewisham
(The Lewisham
Lewisham
Council for Voluntary Service) is an independent charitable organisation that supports the voluntary and community sector in the London
London
borough of Lewisham. Its role is to oversee and grow the many voluntary groups and organisations across the borough. Rushey Green Time Bank[edit] Rushey Green Time Bank was the first time bank in the UK to be based in a health-care setting. It is the largest time bank in south-east London
London
and it has established a reputation for pioneering work in this field for 12 years.
