Maryon Wilson Park  
Maryon Wilson Park was part of the ancient forest known as Hanging Wood. It was a good hiding place for highwaymen and reputedly feared by Samuel Pepys when he went to Woolwich; it was the subject of a poem in 1844 by William Bance. The wood was part of the estate of the Maryon Wilson family who owned Charlton Manor and gave the land for public open space. It was opened by the London County Council in 1926.
