The Royal Navy auxiliary ship RFA Mounts Bay has berthed in Greenwich for a stay over the long Jubilee weekend.
The ship is berthed from 1st June to the 6th June and is set to to hold events and welcome guests from the UK and Commonwealth.
One event includes 100 school pupils will on board for “The Big Jubilee Lunch”.
RFA Mounts Bay – named after Mounts Bay in Cornwall – is a Royal Navy axillary landing vessel used to transport heavy machinery such as tanks alongside troops to the front line.
The Royal Navy have released a number of images of the event. One in particular shows towers in Woolwich which are changing the face of the town.
They include Mast Quay’s second phase – which I looked at last week and has seen cost cutting in design since renders of the project were released – alongside Berkeley Homes’ tower.
The third and fourth of six towers are now taking shape, with early planning applications for the final two towers recently submitted. most is technical stuff with little in the way of design. Berkeley have been pretty coy when it comes to the final two blocks.
In between if course sits the Waterfront leisure centre, which is due for demolition and replacement in the town centre off General Gordon Square.
Last week I took a look at the latest plans, which show that Viscount House is set to be demolished from August 2022.
