Ladywell information

The Area

Approximately 7 miles from central London and surrounded by green spaces, local people often say that Ladywell has a "village" like feel. 

The area is named after the site of a well dating back to the 15th century which is thought to have been dedicated to the Virgin Mary. It was covered over in the mid-18th century as part of the construction of sewer works. Another well is located nearby at what is now 148 Ladywell Road. This was a mineral spring, the waters of which local people drank for medicinal purposes.
Another notable landmark is Ladywell Lodge, one of the remaining buildings from the Ladywell Infirmary which was formerly part of the Bermondsey Workhouse.
With a variety of independent shops, bars, cafes and a deli with both Ladywell Fields and Hilly Fields a short walk away.
Two parts of Ladywell have also been recently been granted conservation status, 'The Ladywell Conservation Area' and the 'St Margarets Conservation Area'.

Typical property types:
The area comprises a range of mainly period property types, including converted period flats, new build properties, and 3 bedroom houses - either 1920/30s (along roads such as Elsiemaud and Amyruth) or Victorian/Edwardian houses. In general, larger Victorian/Edwardian houses are to be found in the Vicars Hill area along roads such as Embleton Rd and Ermine Rd.
