London Scenes - London Docks - Deadmans Dock - Deptford Wharf
Deadman's Dock, or Dodman's Dock, was named after the shipbuilders Dudman & Company, who operated here at the end of the 18th century. It was bought from them by the Brighton and South Coast Railway Company in 1850. It was then owned by Southern Railway and eventually British Rail after nationalisation, until it closed in 1970. It is now the site of the Surrey Quays shopping centre on the Isle of Dogs.
