Panel 6 - GREENWICH PUMPING STATION Greenwich High Road
Deptford Creek Bridge

A storyboard could be located on the perimeter of the Thames Water site bythe main GREPS site entrance on Greenwich High Road. The sign would describe structures within the site that can not be seen from the road such as the Grade II listed Pumping Station and Coal Sheds. It would direct interested viewers to neighbouring Heritage Trail story boards, including the “super site” panel 5.

This panel would also tell the story of Ferranti’s ground breaking London Electricity Supply Company, which switched on the world’s first modern power station in 1891, and with it, via the LESC substation still visible near the GREPS entrance, the electric street lights along Greenwich High Road. The location would need to be agreed and coordinated with Thames Water’s future plans for signage and interpretation for this site.

The ambition is to show the locations of the information boards on Google Maps to help navigate to them and to help share digital information, old photos and interesting stories. See our demonstration here
