Woolwich to Thamesmead

To complete the narrative of my walk from West Ham to Abbey Woods – rather further than I planned – I am posting a few miscellaneous pictures of the route, which is empty and along a bit of the Thames I didn’t know.

The tunnel at Woolwich (it’s actually only used for cycling):-

One of the deserted piers on the north side:-

And on the south side:-

At Tripcock Point, where the Princess Alice sank on 3 September 1878, with devastating loss of life, there are good views east:-


And north:-

But it’s hard to see it as an area for pleasure steamers and to imagine Turner on a boat travelling downriver to Gravesend.
