About The Deptford Anchor:


Apart from a blown up photo of a 1757 painting by John Cleverley the Elder on a wall behind the high street  – the anchor at the top of Deptford High Street has, for the past 26 years, been the only visible reminder in the town centre of Deptford's immensely rich maritime history. Originally located in Chatham Historic Dockyard, it was installed in 1988 when the high street was last given a makeover, and has become a famous and much loved symbolic landmark for many Deptford people.

There would be no World Heritage site at Greenwich to speak of if it weren't for the shipbuilding and its attendant business that went on at Deptford since King Henry VIII established the King's Yard (now Convoys Wharf) exactly 500 years ago. In fact this year, more than any other, Lewisham should be celebrating this history, not removing the last visible reminder of it.
