An Iconic Location

Built on the Plumstead Marshes, the former testing ground of the Royal Arsenal in Woolwich, the thousand acre site of Thamesmead was built by the Greater London Council in the late 1960’s.

The site was concrete brutalist backdrop to iconic Stanley Kubrick movie ‘A Clockwork Orange’ and the hit TV series ‘Misfits’.
