|Description: As Deptford became more crowded in the 19th century, different types of housing tended to be grouped in districts. The poorest people lived in the riverside areas alongside the Thames and Deptford Creek. The better off lived off the New Cross Road, in Brockley and in Hatcham. However, many of the worst slums were cleared at the turn of the century.|
