Entrance to Rockcliffe Gardens in the snow
In the 1840s the land where Rockcliffe Gardens is now located was a farm called Tidneys Field. By 1869 brick works had been established on the north end of Tidneys and the field was dug out and used as a claypit. The brick works appear to have closed by the end of the 19th century. The field was used as allotments and a rubbish tip until the land was purchased by Woolwich Borough Council in January 1935. They realised the slopes and terraces formed by the clay digging would make a good garden. Rockcliffe Gardens was opened in early summer 1937 by the Mayor of Woolwich. This is the southern entrance seen from Southland Road.
