Event description
Woolwich Dockyard was where Henry VIII's ship The Great Harry was built in 1514. This walk explores the site of shipbuilding for 350 years

About this Event

 

 In 1514 the warship Great Harry was constructed at Woolwich - the pride of Henry VIII's fleet. For nearly 350 years after this ships were built and repaired at Woolwich Dockyard, with huge store houses, dry docks and a ropery which was one of the largest in the world. Then in 1869 the dockyard closed.

You can still find traces of the dockyard and this walk will trace its remaining features, tell the stories of the  ships built there and the people who worked in the dockyard. On the walk we will also explore the industrial area that replaced the dockyard which has its own story to tell.

 

The walk is about two miles in total
