Catford takes its name from a place where cattle crossed the River Ravensbourne. Rumour has it that the name is associated with black cats and witchcraft. If you look over the entrance to the market place you will see a huge fibre glass cat. This is Catford.
With a busy shopping area and market place Catford is pretty much like any other suburb or small town within London. It has a few cafes and a couple of good restaurants and until recently a greyhound racing track that got burned down.
