Lewisham House, Lewisham High Street, Lewisham, 1857


Lewisham House stood at the junction of Lewisham High Street and Ladywell Road.

Lewisham House was one of the old High Street mansions that succumbed to the residential, commercial and, in this case, administrative development demanded by the growing town. Lewisham House was sacrificed to the need of a fire station, police station, mortuary and coroner's court.

At one time in use as a private school, the house had been significantly altered by its last owners, the wealthy Parker family.
