Silwood Estate, Rotherhithe, London, SE16
It used to cover a very large area bounded by Rotherhithe New Road, Silwood Street, Reculver Road and Oldfield Grove. Part was in Rotherhithe and a small section in Lewisham. Image shows the now derelict Gillam House in Silwood Street named after Samuel Gillam (JP) who, in April 1764, sentenced the murderer William Corbett to death. Behind the flats is Corbetts Lane and to the left of the photographer is Corbetts Passage. The London Nautical School in Lambeth started in a school in Silwood Street, the Rotherhithe side of (site of the recently demolished Goldsworthy Gardens)Reculver Road. School evacuated to Sussex during WWII and on it's return moved to Lambeth. Incidentally General Goldsworthy was Lord of the Manor of Rotherhithe from 1777 to 1801.
