Injury Lawyers Blackheath


Blackheath is an inner suburban area of the South East of London which in the present day lies largely in the London Borough of Lewisham. The region takes its name from the large area of open public grassland in the area, which is actually one of the largest areas of common land in Greater London. The name Blackheath can be traced back as far as 1166 when a region in the area was recorded as having been called Blachehedfeld which in the Old English meant ‘dark coloured heathland.’

Links to the Black Death

Despite this record of the area’s name in the mid-12th century there is a popular urban myth that the ‘Black’ part of the region’s name came from the fact that there was a significant plague pit under the open grassland which played host to a huge number of victims of the ‘Black Death’. This does seem to be nothing more than a myth but it does feed into a long tradition of plague stories and superstitions that stretch around all areas of London.

Modern Blackheath

Fortunately, in the modern age there is no worries about plague in Blackheath, but the area does face its own contemporary issues. These include the fact that due to the large open grassy area, there is a comparatively large amount of violent crime which can lead to serious injury. This in turn means that for injury lawyers Blackheath does produce a relatively large number of personal injury compensation claims.
