Coordinates: Deptford Wharf in London, UK is situated on the Thames Path south-east of South Dock Marina, across the culverted mouth of the Earl's Sluice and north of Aragon Tower. The housing here, completed in 1992, is on the site of former railway sidings and riverside wharves, and before then docks and building slips. 
Dock and Shipyard
William Dudman established the yard. To complete some contracts he went into partnership with Henry Adams of Bucklers Hard and William Barnard of Ipswich. When William died in 1772 his son John Dudman took over. From about 1808 the yard is shown as Dudman & Son. By 1814 the yard had five building slips and two double dry docks.

In 1846, the board of the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway (LB&SCR) requested Chief Engineer Robert Jacomb-Hood to construct a branchline from New Cross to the River Thames at Deptford, where he was to also design, survey and manage the construction of a new dock system to replace the now closed Deptford dockyard. Jacomb-Hood instructed his recently appointed assistant Frederick Banister to design, survey and manage construction of the branchline and dock, which was completed in 1849.
