Cormill Gardens

As part of the ‘Urban Renaissance in Lewisham’ programme, Cornmill Gardens is a space for relaxing amongst the planting and taking in the views of the improved river. Previously confined in a concrete channel, the river has been opened up and widened to incorporate it into the site, improving natural habitats and promoting native flora and fauna. The high quality pedestrian and cycle links to and from the town centre are being well used, and the intervention of art, lighting and signage has helped to establish a sense of identity and local belonging in a safe environment.
