The Best Of New Cross In Photos

New Cross, in the London Borough of Lewisham, was known as Hatcham in the Domesday Book of 1086. The name New Cross is thought to have come from the Golden Cross coaching inn which was once in the area. Today it's home to Goldsmiths College, as well as two mainline stations, New Cross and New Cross Gate (the latter sits on the site of an old tollgate).
