A Quick Overview of Deptford
Deptford is an area of South-East London, England, located mainly within the London Borough of Lewisham and partly within the Royal Borough of Greenwich.
From the mid-16th to the late 19th century, Deptford was home to Deptford Dockyard, the first Royal Navy Dockyard. The area declined as the Royal Navy moved out and commercial docks shut; the last dock, Convoys Wharf, closed in 2000.
