Catford Corner, Summer 2013
I finally managed to find my pictures of the 'Wild Walker' spirit taken in 2013.
The corner was originally one entrance to Catford dog track. It is cut off at either side by the train lines of Catford Station on the West and Catford Bridge Station and also the river Ravensbourne on the East.
Earlier that summer it was briefly home to a group of travelers before they were evicted by the owners of the land, the GLA. They sold the land to Barratt Homes who have since built luxury style apartments on the site.
The spirit of the Lewisham Natureman appears on an old container at the far end, standing tall, head back and howling.
