Also known as Blackheath Village: situated in the middle of Blackheath Common, on the edge of Greenwich Park, in South London. Covered by the London Borough of Lewisham. Blackheath is posh, twee and poncey, and full of 'elegant' Georgian houses, antique shops, estate agents and over-priced delicatessens.
The heath once used to be a rallying point for large groups entering London from the east, including Wat Tyler's band of rebels at the time of the Peasants' Revolt of 1381. It was also the haunt of highwaymen in the 17th century. Now they fly kites on it on Sundays, and occasionally have a funfair.
Also the birthplace of me..
