Shipwright's Palace is created specifically to blog on the subject of Historic Maritime Deptford and associated topics.
perhaps the imminent development of Convoy's Wharf will be inspired by the scale and mass of the Great Storehouse of 1720 and build in a modern idiom respecting the former scale and mass.
When will there be a public access archaeological dig on the site. It would seem to be one of the most exciting sites to look at. Can the slipways become marginal land/water spaces for the swans to nest in?
Marvellous...is any of this public information or are you just sneaking out secrets? :-o
two tablespoons of wishful-thinking.......
I remember reading somewhere that the slipways as well as the dock maybe in stone so I would guess that if stone slipways are present, as for instance the slipway to the boat houses/masthouses are shown as, well, paved in Portland stone, then such marginal spaces for bird life should be possible, given the imagination and will of all concerned.
Thank you for sharinng this
