The Wood That Built London: Hatcham Wood

The woods formed part of six manors: Hatcham, Camberwell, Lewisham, Lambeth, Croydon and Benchesham. The most northerly part lay within the manor of Hatcham, or Hatcham Barnes, to the south of Deptford and west of Greenwich. Now absorbed into New Cross, this all but forgotten district lives on only in the names of Haberdashers’ Aske’s Hatcham College and the Hatcham Liberal Club.
