Lewisham ‘Did you know?’

  • Lewisham is the 13th largest borough in London, by population and the fifth largest in inner London.
  • The borough, divided into 18 wards, is 13.4 square miles and is one of the greenest parts of south-east London. Over a fifth of the borough is parkland or open space.
  • The motto of the borough is 'Salus Populi Suprema Lex', which means (roughly translated) 'The welfare of the people is the first great law'.
  • Famous people born in Lewisham include Gary Oldman, Alexander McQueen, Jessica Hynes, Louise Redknapp, Danny Baker, Maxi Priest, and Sid Vicious.
  • In 1977, the Battle of Lewisham saw the biggest London street battle against fascists since the Battle of Cable Street in 1936, after 500 members of the far-right National Front (NF) attempted to march from New Cross to Lewisham; 56 police officers were injured (11 were hospitalised) and 214 people were arrested.
