High tide at Deptford Creek really doesn’t show it at its best.
It may be surrounded by new builds which are let or sold at very high prices – but keeping the creek clean seems an afterthought.
Here we can see the new Essential Living tower – where a 3 bed will set you back well over £2k a month in rent:
And of course New Capital Quay is alongside. Buyers didn’t expect flammable cladding on their buildings and a rubbish strewn Creek next door.
When heading to Waitrose or the river this mess really does stand out.
The purpose of being in the area was to see if anything had changed at the Haddo estate on Thornham Street. It’s long neglected yet scaffolding was evident on a tower last year and money is now proposed on an adjacent site – so had any work been carried out on the estate’s open spaces? See in a following post later.
