Block Management Deptford
As a specialist Block Management Company we are operating in Deptford.
History of Deptford
The name Deptford derives from Division of the Parish. This is based on a ford across the Ravensbourne river, along the route of the Celtic trackway. Hence the name "deep ford" became the similar name Deptford. This was later paved by the Romans, and developed into the medieval Watling Street.
Deptford featured in the pilgrimage route from London to Canterbury in Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales, in the prologue to The Reeve's Tale.
Deptford Dockyard was established by Henry VIII in 1513, as the first Royal Dockyard. It became a major shipping dock, where many famous names in history spent their time, including Peter The Great, ruler of the Russian Empire from 1862. He studied shipbuilding. The dockyard was mainly inactive in 1830, and although shipbuilding briefly resumed in the 1840s, the navy closed the yard in 1869.

Deptford Cultural Scene
Twinkle Park is a lovely little park, located at the end of Watergate Street. This is an unusual backwater of cobbled streets, that meander around the old wharves and housing estates. The layout of the roads dates back to the origins of Deptford's shipbuilding history. Close to Twinkle Park and just across the street, is the master shipwright's house, built in 1708, for Joseph Allen. The park itself has a children's play area, which is also a school playground during school hours. There is a small but pretty little pond, with irises, and surrounded by wooden decking and flower beds.
