Catford starts where inner London stops, right on the South Circular. The local dog track closed six years ago but has been reincarnated as Catford Green, above, with 415 flats in 13 buildings, plus shops and community facilities.

Along with neighbouring Ladywell, Catford is being discovered by central London workers, young couples and families, drawn to its relatively cheap Victorian and interwar terraces. Sturdy three-bedroom houses start at less than £450,000, while the new-builds include one-bedroom flats from £187,000. Call 0844 5566 166.

In Zone 3, Catford is a 15-minute train commute from Charing Cross and has a popular Art Deco theatre, good community schools and playing fields.

Barratt, developer of the old greyhound stadium, is paying for “public realm” improvements that will upgrade adjacent Ladywell Fields and the banks of the Ravensbourne River, which runs through this 54-acre green expanse.
