Revealing The Creek

All Ashburnham Triangle Association members, their relatives and friends are cordially invited to join a free guided walk on Saturday 30th April to explore Deptford Creek's rich industrial heritage.

The walk will be led by long-term Greenwich residents Mick Delap and Neil Sinclair, and is part of the Revealing The Creek programme, aimed at uncovering and discussing it's 19th century industrial activity and where it happened along the Creek.

Revealing The Creek is a community heritage and performance project based on different stories from Deptford Creek's past, present and future. Its main partners are Raybel Charters, National Maritime Museum, Arthouse Ventures and is supported by The Heritage Lottery Fund.

You can find the meeting spot for the tour - The Old Joinery - next to the Euromix concrete and aggregate site at the corner of Norman Road and Creek Road, and on the eastern side of Deptford Creek just up Creek from the Deptford Creek/Creek Road bridge. For public transport the nearest bus stops are Creekside (Z) and Creek Road Norman Road (Y) and Cutty Sark DLR station.

On this gentle stroll along and near the banks of the Creek, you can see where industrial entrepreneurs and inventors pioneered techniques and processes that helped revolutionise transport, communications, electric light distribution, fire-fighting equipment and agriculture.

Please join Mick and Neil at 11.30 on Saturday 30th April. The walk finishes back at the Old Joinery around 1.30pm for a Powerpoint presentation  Refreshments will be available enroute and at The Old Joinery for drinks and pizzas.
