Neglected patch of land on Montrose Way

Does anyone know who owns this neglected patch of land on
Montrose way?

The Land Registry website ( allows you to drop a pin on a map and then find any titles to the land - it costs £3 to buy a copy of the deeds though.

Curiosity got the better of me…

I think it is title number SGL179830, and owned by “THE MAYOR AND BURGESSES OF THE LONDON BOROUGH OF LEWISHAM of Town Hall, Catford, London SE6 4RU.”

It is definitely worth checking that it is registered as metropolitan open land or green space, just in case it gets developed.

I live next to this bit of land and its surprising how many people would enjoy the bench there.

The current state is due to it being used as storage for all the diggers during the works on Waldram Park rd. Shame they didnt give it a spruce up after they left.


Send Lewisham an email, & ask them to do it. Realistically, it won’t happen atm, but good to let them know that people care, and will push for it to be maintained. Put them on notice.
