Situated in the London Borough of Lewisham, Catford is a district of South-East London. It is famous for its fibreglass black cat sculpture that can be seen in the town centre on the high street. The name was probably taken from a ford across the River Ravensbourne that was frequented by wild cats in the past. Unlike many other parts of London, this part of London hasn’t changed much in recent years due to gentrification and it still reflects how it was like in the past to live in a district of central London.
