Biographical / Historical

South East South London borough of Lewisham, adjoining Bermondsey, was a highly mixed area with the River Thames in the north, dense urban fabric in the centre and leafy suburbs to the south. As a result of its town centre being devastated by a flying bomb in 1944, a 40 acre Comprehensive Development Area was designated by London County Council at Lewisham Clock Tower.
