I started this walk by gong to the Colonnades and through the arch, passed the houses to the entrance to the garages to find the World War II Memorial for the Royal Victoria Yard.
After viewing the Memorial, I walked along Longshore to the Green Space in front of Bembridge House and walk along the side of it until I got to Daubeny Tower and onto Bowditch, and walked up to Grove Street.
I turned left into Grove Street and continued down to Sayes Court Park, where I walked through and into Sayes Court Street and then into Prince Street, where I joined the Thames Path and followed it all the way to Greenwich.
From here I crossed the Thames to Island Gardens via the Greenwich Foot Tunnel.
From Island Gardens, I followed the Thames Path North side until I reached Canary Wharf, where I took a Jubilee line train back to Canada Water and walked to the Wetherspoon pub The Surrey Docks for a refreshing pint at the end of this long walk.
Photos from this walk can be seen on Flickr and My Site
I started the walk near Deptford Park at the junction of Grinstead Road and Evelyn Street. From here I walked down Grinstead Road with the park on my right-hand side. At the end of the road I followed it under the railway bridge to the junction of Surrey Canal Road and Trundleys Road.
From here I looked for looked for the Canal Approach. I found it protected by gates so could not go any further. Continue reading “Walk One – Around Deptford and Greenwich”
