Shortlands Close, DA17
Shortlands Close and the flats along it were constructed in the mid-1990s. Prior to this, the area was occupied by semi-detached houses with large gardens, which dated from the post-war period and were built on the site of Railway Farm. The farm and its buildings spanned the length of Abbey Road, on the south side of the North Kent Line railway tracks.

Pirates were publicly hanged at Execution Dock in Wapping. The bodies of the pirates amongst them were placed in a cage and brought further downstream to Blackwall Point, the northernmost tip of the Greenwich Peninsula. They would then be left in the cages and left to rot - a warning to ships passing through into London.
