Shooter's Hill (or Shooters Hill) is a district and electoral ward in south London, England, located in the Royal Borough of Greenwich. It lies east of Blackheath and west of Welling, south of Woolwich and north of Eltham. With a height of 423 feet, it is one of the highest points in London. Shooter's Hill also gives its name to the A road which passes through east to west and is part of the A207 road, the A2 road, and also Watling Street. This is not to be confused with another part of the former Watling Street known as Shoot-Up Hill, which forms part of the A5 in Kilburn in the north-west of the city.
Famous quotes containing the word hill:
“The longer a woman remains single, the more apprehensive she will be of entering into the state of wedlock. At seventeen or eighteen, a girl will plunge into it, sometimes without either fear or wit; at twenty, she will begin to think; at twenty-four, will weigh and discriminate; at twenty-eight, will be afraid of venturing; at thirty, will turn about, and look down the hill she has ascended, and sometimes rejoice, sometimes repent, that she has gained that summit sola.”
—Samuel Richardson (16891761)
