In 1956 Ladywell Recreation Ground had been known as such for 56 years or so.
50 years later and I saw today that they now call the same place Ladywell Fields.
4 syllable words are obviously too much for the modern day dweller of Lewisham & Catford.
Ladywell itself has 3 syllables and surely cannot survive.
Perhaps it will become first Lady Fields, and then, because Fields are a bit of a difficult concept in Lewisham, just plain Bitch Pitch
