Spiral bridge in Ladywell Fields
Spiral bridge in Ladywell Fields
This well-designed bridge with spiral approaches takes the Waterlink Way over the Hayes railway line in Ladywell Fields park. The spiral includes both a smooth ramp for cyclists (at a gradient that can easily be ascended if approached in a low enough gear) and steps for pedestrians.
Ladywell Fields
Ladywell Fields is an area of flood plain around the Ravensbourne river south of Lewisham. It forms a linear park, at the heart of which are the river itself and the Waterlink Way - a surfaced path forming part of National Cycle Route 21.

The northern part of the park was landscaped in 2007, including routing a stream through the park in meandering fashion. This was part of the QUERCUS project LinkExternal link using EU money for flood prevention and landscape improvements.

The central and southern sections were improved in the Parklands project in 2010/11, financed by the Housing & Communities Agency and the London Development Agency.
National Cycle Network Route 21
Route 21 of The National Cycle Network runs south from Greenwich out of London through Lewisham (the Waterlink Way) to Crawley, and then via East Grinstead and Eridge to Heathfield and Eastbourne.
The section between Groombridge and East Grinstead follows the Forest Way. LinkExternal link
