It’s been revealed by Street Feast that Woolwich’s old covered market may be closed all year due to “maintenance issues”.
The covered market which was recently granted Grade II listed status – which affects plans for wider redevelopment of the site.
In previous weeks a delay to reopening was mooted but it was supposed to open today, when news came out that a reopening may not occur at all this year.
Hi Emily, we're not sure when or if we'll be reopening Public this year due to ongoing maintenance issues. But keep an eye on our socials for updates.

Woolwich can’t catch a catch a break recently with delays all over the shop. Crossrail is delayed to who knows when (2020?), Woolwich Ferry reopening is delayed until “February” now and one of the newest attractions is now possibly closed all year.
And as I recently covered, numerous places in the town centre have shut for good recently including the highly rated Fishyard restaurant, Starbucks and Peacocks will close doors soon.
With many thousands of new homes and many more residents this wasn’t supposed to happen.
