A new book has been published by local historian and former Greenwich Cllr Dr Mary Mills looking at the history of Greenwich Peninsula.
Here’s the press release: “Greenwich Peninsula – Greenwich Marsh: History of an Industrial Heartland” details the transformation of this former marshland into the vibrant, cutting edge district that it is today.
Readers will discover more about the Peninsula’s history in the industries of gunpowder, ship-building, cable-making, telecommunications and more.
The new 232-page book, available exclusively through Amazon, is the latest release from Mills who has written extensively about the area through a number of books and articles.
Dr Mills commented: “Explaining to people the scale of change in this remarkable area and the impact it has had on the world has been my passion in recent decades. Hopefully this new book will make the history of the Peninsula accessible to anyone who is interested in, or has a connection to, this unique location.”
Mary Mills has lived in Greenwich for 50 years and for 14 years was the local Labour councillor for the Peninsula and East Greenwich. She is also the Chair of Greenwich Industrial History Society.
