Deptford Royal Dockyard

Deptford was building warships on the Thames from its founding in 1513.


The London location on the Thames immediately west of Deptford Creek made Deptford an increasingly difficult place from which to deliver a large warship. The Dockyard was closed in 1869, leaving only a victualling establishment, which would operate for another century.
