Woolwich is a distinctive London district, a riverside settlement with pre-Roman origins which grew into a military-industrial center of national importance. Massive investment fueled a series of military establishments, a naval dockyard, and the Royal Arsenal, bringing prosperity to the town and dominating its economy. At the same time, Woolwich developed a dynamic civic identity, reflected in its impressive municipal buildings and ambitious public-housing program. This historic richness is not well-known. The new Survey of London volume brings together everything of significance in Woolwich's built history, and will prove invaluable to historians, planners, residents, and the wider public.
