A walk around Silvertown, a place of early inspiration for the Derelict London website. Much has changed over the last 12 years and this tour takes in some remaining sites of decay which are most certainly set to change over the next few years in the name of regeneration.
This tour views the exteriors of sites covered in the Derelict London website & book such as the long abandoned but soon to be redeveloped Millennium Mills, the derelict Tate Institute, the remains of Tay Wharf & the closed down Georges Diner (without the apostrophe!) plus some original picket line graffiti,an overgrown dead pub, a Victorian church that is now a music hall, a memorial to an explosion at a local munitions factory plus some general history of the area, social stories from the past and a look at how its all about to change. At the end, as always, there will be the option to join Paul for a pint. This time on ex-Royal Navy refuelling barge converted into a bar!
