NAMED AFTER
St. George's Church dominates the area to the West of the section. It closed in 1978, became derelict, then was incorporated into a new Sainsbury's supermarket, opening in 1988. Sadly, the church is now once again out of use as Sainsbury's moved in 2015 to a new, purpose-built site adjacent to the Inner Ring Road to the West of SE05: ST. MARK'S.

OF NOTE
This is probably the section where the old street patterns are most obvious. The line of CLEVELAND ROAD across the pedestrian crossing being a former major road, whose line is obvious even across the former Sainsbury's car park to the West of the road. And the line of POWLETT STREET, which is also a car park to the West of the Inner Ring Road, and leads directly to the East door of St. John's Church.
