Saville Road, E16
Road which has existed since the nineteenth century or before
Saville Road is famous as the street featured in the credits of the TV series "Call The Midwife".
North Woolwich is a place in the London Borough of Newham. It is located north of Woolwich proper which is on the south bank of the River Thames. The two places are linked by the Woolwich Ferry and the Woolwich foot tunnel.
When originally laid out, Saville Road crossed Drew Road
meeting the boundary of the dock. Drew Road
School was situated in this ’lost’ section of Saville Road.
Saville Road is the setting for a famous photograph of the Dominion Monarch in the King George V Dry Dock, pictured immediately behind Saville Road’s dock fence. The ship was part of the Shaw Saville Line. The Dominion Monarch was launched in 1939 and broken up in 1962. It was in the King George V dock for a clean up of its bottom and a repaint.
The dock has now been partially filled in and the DLR station for the City Airport can now be seen from the street instead of the dock.

North Woolwich consists of two tracts of land, totalling 412 acres on the north bank of the River Thames in east London.
Administratively, North Woolwich was part of Kent at least since the Norman Conquest when one of William the Conqueror's lords, Hamon, was granted land on both sides of the Thames at this spot, probably to enable him to enjoy the taxes from cross-river traffic. It lay in the parish of Woolwich and later the Metropolitan Borough of Woolwich, but was absorbed into the London Borough of Newham in 1965 when Woolwich south of the Thames became part of the London Borough of Greenwich.
It is unique in Outer London in being part of the County of London before 1965. The population peaked just before the First World War, and reduced substantially in the Second World War when it was heavily bombed.
