Burst water main and flooding hits Plumstead street

A water main has burst in Wickham Lane causing the emergency services to arrive and close parts of the area.

Heavy rain has hit the area in recent days. A sinkhole opened relatively close to the north in recent days.

The ground below this area is riddled with old mines and caves used to extract chalk for bricks.

Update: The road is now closed with buses diverted.


As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

Support me and the site via Paypal here which allows me to focus time on researching and writing posts alongside taking photographs to document changes. Adverts are far from enough to cover living costs.

Thank you

I've lived in south east London most of my life growing up in Greenwich borough and working in the area for many years. The site has contributors on occasion and we cover many different topics. Living and working in the area offers an insight into what is happening locally.
