If you look at Greenwich today you would have a very hard time imaging what it was like in the past. There may be a number of signs of the heritage and character of the area, but that does not tell the whole story. You need to take a proper look back to get a real idea of the scale of the change.

Post war

Before WWII Greenwich was a largely industrial area. It was home to a number of important industries, including shipbuilding and ammunitions/weaponry. The Royal Arsenal was a vital asset, especially for WWI and WWII. However, that made the area a major target. In the Second World War it was hit heavily during the Blitz.

Post war Greenwich was a very different area to what you see today. The clean up after the war was a huge project. Because of the extent of the damage, it took until well into the 60s to demolish lots of the buildings and start the rebuild in earnest. As a result, for years many parts of the area were rubble and full or properties in various states of ruin. You could walk around and see some structures with only one or two walls standing and all the debris you would expect.

The Greenwich of this time was also an industrial heartland. There were large factories, warehouses, boat builders, coal merchants, gas works, and more. Plus you could find rows of barges along the river. These were essential for transporting goods to and from the area.


Property management GreenwichModern Greenwich is very far from this. Much of the industry is gone and a lot of the river is now lined with modern developments. There are all kinds of luxury apartment blocks with excellent views of the city and beyond. Even Royal Arsenal is now a residential and cultural district.

The modernisation of the area has also brought everything you would expect from a growing residential area. This includes restaurants, bars, and nightlife. Today you will see locals spending their day at the park and enjoying the local amenities rather than working in industries along the river.
