There were puzzled looks all round when the Mayor announced earlier this week that one of the nine new housing zones, designated for large numbers of new homes, was to be a place called New Bermondsey?

Where's New Bermondsey? Nobody round here had a clue.

It turns out it is the area around Millwall FC - in the London Borough of Lewisham.

2,400 new homes will be built (right) and a new Overground station will be created on the line which runs from Surrey Quays to Clapham Junction.

Orginally it was to be called Surrey Canal Station but now the whole district and the station is to be 'rebranded' as 'New Bermondsey.'

Bermondsey's just got a bit bigger.
