Thamesmead, SE28 was gradually developed from the mid-60s through to the 80s, with the area initially divided into sectors for accommodation and commerce. It sits nearby by the River Thames in the borough of Woolwich and features the Crossness Pumping Station, a now defunct Victorian sewage treatment plant. There are plenty of green spaces for locals to enjoy in Thamesmead, including Plumstead Gardens, Birchmere Park, Broadwater Green and Lesnes Abbey Woods.
Thousands of new homes are being planned in Thamesmead, as part of a wider regeneration of the area. A Thamesmead DLR extension could also be built, as presently there the area does not feature its own tube or British Rail station. Drivers can use the A2041, or the Eastern or Western Way to journey into its centre.
