Woolwich estate rebuild now visible from street

Construction of new blocks forming part of a larger estate rebuild in Woolwich are now well underway.

The first of four blocks at Morris Walk can be seen poking up above site hoardings, with the plot eventually set for 304 homes.


That’s a doubling of previous numbers on site at 152.

Former blocks as demolition work begun in 2021

Morris Walk estate was a system built estate constructed in the 1960s. Redevelopment has been split into areas north and south of the railway.

A 2021 timetable for the overall project stated construction work was set to complete in the last quarter of 2024 on the northern half of the site.

The below image gives an overview of the wider Morris Walk rebuilt which straddles both sides of the railway between Woolwich and Charlton.

Plot A of the southern element is due to complete at the same time as the entire northern half.

Various plots are then due to finish in stages up to 2026.

The southern half will total 462 homes, which is up from 410 before.

The sits relatively close to – though isn’t part of – the Charlton Riverside masterplan which could see up to 8,000 homes.

After many years, work on the first plot of the masterplan is now underway with warehouses coming down.


Running a site alone takes time and a fair bit of money. Adverts are far from enough to cover it and my living costs as a private renter.
