Map of Ladywell, Lewisham, 1930


The main landowners in the Ladywell area were the Vicar of Lewisham and the Corporation of London, for the Bridge House Estate.

The vicar's glebe to the north of the village was built over from the 1880s.

Bridge House Farm to the south was demolished c.1899, and the roads on its site (Chudleigh, etc.) built from the early years of the 20th century.

The St Olave's Bermondsey workhouse was built on the fields of Slagrave Farm and opened in 1900. Development was nearly complete by 1930.
