I had assumed bomb damage and had checked bombsite - the result returned only applied to the Blitz - early years of the war. Checking "Clapham bombing" or similar returned the dropping of V1 and V2 rockets on Clapham Common near The Pavement.

I know that BombSight doesn’t show all ‘hits’, but you might find more detail on the bomb map on the layers of London website:
