Five hundred years of Deptford and Woolwich Royal Dockyards and counting…

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

To contextualise the conference, this article describes the closure of Deptford and Woolwich Dockyards and their remaining structures. It then summarises NDS participation in Deptford Dockyard’s planning process, since 2002, to improve the design of Deptford’s redevelopment and protect its archaeology. The 2013 conference occurred towards the end of this convoluted process.

This conference marked a major centenary of the first royal dockyards built on the River Thames. Several conference speakers were actors in the debates surrounding the planning applications. Consequent upon the papers offered, there was more of a focus on Deptford than Woolwich.
