Primary tabs

"DEPTFORD, comprises the parishes of St. Paul, and St. Nicholas, it is a town and naval arsenal, chiefly in the hundred of Blackheath, lathe of Sutton-at-Hone, in the county of Kent, but partly also in the hundred of East Brixton, in the county of Surrey, 4 miles E. of London. It is situated on the S. bank of the Thames, at the mouth of the Ravensbourne, which is here crossed by two bridges. The one was built by Charles I. in 1628, but has been subsequently widened; the other is a recent structure, over the small estuary called Deptford Creek, and opens a direct communication between the lower part of Deptford and Greenwich, of which borough it forms part, having been united to it for parliamentary purposes by the Act 2 William IV., cap. 45."
