The oldest of the three buildings making up the Lewisham College campus on Lewisham Way is a plain brick structure put up in 1927-30 by London County Council. Its facade is enlivened by a series of heraldic plaques in Doulton’s polychrome stoneware designed by Gilbert Bayes and the sculptor Stanley Nicholson Babb.
In the entrance of the Old Tiger’s Head (1896), 351 Lee High Road (at its east end, on the corner with Lee Road), is a large hand-painted Craven Dunnill tile panel showing a tiger’s head. Opposite, at 159 Lee Road, is the New Tiger’s Head, with an elaborate facade including a terracotta tiger’s head at parapet level.
