Millpond Estate (part) Rotherhithe, London, SE16
Millpond Estate (part) Rotherhithe, London, SE16
The estate is bounded by Bermondsey Wall East (previously Rotherhithe Street), West lane and Paradise Street. Named after the Mill Pond that was once about 500 yards south of the estate off Southwark Park Road. In 1588 gravel was required for ballast in ships for the defence of the Thames against a possible Spanish invasion. A hole was dug, gravel excavated, hole filled with water = the pond. Over many years various buildings sprung up nearby but in 1902 the pond was filled in after being described as "that receptacle of abominations". The estate was built over Gillam Court, Donne Place and Wormald Place.
