    Went on a massive cycle with IC today and managed to get in one place that I have been looking at for ages... Lovells Wharf. We went on to the Royal Military Academy in Woolwich (i'm sure someone will post another report on here I can add too ;) ) IC will let you know how far we cycled, the max speed... yawn.

    A bit of background...
    "The riverside sites back towards Greenwich have mainly been used for wharfage and building materials. The wharf recently vacated by Lovells was from 1838 used by Coles Child. He is typical of Greenwich riverside manufacturers. He was a Lambeth-based coal merchant who made enough money to live in the old Bishops' Palace at Bromley. At Greenwich he built up a complex site based on coal brought in from the north-east of England with local cement, lime and gravel. He developed the area of housing around Pelham Road. It was the custom to name streets after the North-East coalfield area--there was once a Newcastle and a Northumberland Street here." - Adapted from a paper by Mary Mills, PhD MPhil. June 1996.
