Find out more about the Morden Wharf proposals down on the Peninsular ….



… even better attend the Greenwich Society AGM – “come virtually” 10th September 19.00 – best get in early ….!



Just allowing my thoughts to wonder a little ….

…take a stroll downstream on the splendid ORNC frontage – home of The University of Greenwich & Trinity College of Music  – carry on along the Canaletto picture to behind the Trafalgar Tavern with its  new spectacular hanging gardens along Crane Street – a residential passageway of old – which has been continued to the elegant Trinity Hospital – before it dives into obscurity by the last industrial giant of London Underground’s power station – its Georgian terrace at Ballast Quay- a unique working wharf of old into ancient marsh land now gobbled up by massive housing scheme which grows bigger every year – see the photo (page 4) montage of even more proposals – see if you can spot the giant gas holders, one of a pair which has finally been demolished in spite of Mary Mills pleas. Only Blackwall’s grandiose tunnel entrance remains as London’s magnificent Docklands has been swept away – alas Francis Ward another friend and worthy historian has past on – farewell..
