Brief Local History of Ladywell
The ‘Lady Well’ was a place near to Ladywell Bridge and very likely to have been in reference to a holy well dedicated to the Virgin Mary as Lewisham also has a church sharing the same name. Evidence of this exists on a map dating back to 1592. Ladywell Fields is a public park which was opened in 1889. The park lies beside the River Ravensbourneand is very likely to be the ’30 aces of meadow mentioned in the Doomsday Book dating back to 1086. The author Henry Williamson who wrote ‘Tarka the Otter’ was brought up in Eastern Avenue in Ladywell and wrote a series of autobiographical novels about his childhood experiences there.
