A look at recently lost Greenwich pubs

Over the past few years a number of Greenwich pubs have been lost or are under threat of imminent demolition in keeping with much of the UK.

Some to the west of the town centre have gone, or are in danger such as the Thames Inn.

Approval for rebuild given
Approved November 2018

Those now lost in Greenwich were attractive buildings featuring some lovely detailing. Two of those lost in the past couple of years were on Creek Road.

Originally a pub before a book store.

There was the Lord Hood next to Up the Creek comedy club.

Before demolition

Work is now underway on this new structure:

The concrete frame is in place for a building of similar height to that which was demolished:

Looking west here along Creek Road shows it alongside other new builds:

Further west is the former Book Time store which was formerly a pub. New homes along Creek Road are complete and if you didn’t know better you’d think the new appendage on the end was part of the adjacent development:

Thames Inn’s demolition will complete the trilogy in this area. however as soon as gaining approval the site owners put it up for sale with no work expected imminently. Though you never know.

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

Support me and the site via Paypal here which allows me to focus time on researching and writing posts alongside taking photographs to document changes. Adverts are far from enough to cover living costs.
