Heading down Shooters Hill in 1846

Now I always thought that these fine houses on Shooters Hill were in Blackheath but I am wrong.

They are in Kidbrook and so feature in Darrel Sprugeon’s excellent guide to Eltham and its Environs.

All of which leads me nicely in to quoting from his book.

These are “an elegant terrace of bow fronted brick houses of 1846, originally known as Waterfield Terrace, with deep eaves and round-headed dormers in distinctively shaped roofs.”
