Local facts
An mp and prolific builder, Archibald Cameron Corbett built more than 3,000 houses in Hither Green and Catford between 1896 and 1914. As a Presbyterian he was a temperance man and he made the rules against licensed premises so tight that it is still hard to get round them. Residents say this has the distinct advantage of little or no drunken behaviour on the local streets
Hither Green got its name as one green nearer to Lewisham, it was dubbed Hither to distinguish it from the other, christened Further Green
All the street names on the popular McKenzie Estate, built by builder McKenzie, are Scottish
Until 2006, if you were arranging to meet up at the Tiger's Head, you had to agree on which one, The Old Tiger's Head or The New Tiger's Head. Some claim The Old Tiger's Head was always the newer of the two. Now it's not a problem, as only the Old Tiger's Head remains open
