Catford is in the London Borough of Lewisham, in south east London. Catford Broadway, in the centre, is a priority area for regeneration, as is Catford Island and the market. This is set to bring an influx of business and commerce into the area. The first round of redevelopment started in 2011, and refurbishment of the main street started in 2013. Catford has some buildings of historical importance, including Broadway Theatre, an impressive Art Deco building which adjoins the town hall. Although in the centre of London, there are green spaces and several parks in Catford. The name is Saxon and relates to the place where cattle used to cross the river Ravensbourne.
