Enderby Wharf: Uncertain future

There is growing concern in Greenwich about the future of Enderby Wharf on the Greenwich Peninsula.

This is where the world’s first telegraph cables were made enabling people to send and receive messages in minutes rather than days or weeks.

Much of the wharf is being redeveloped by Barratt Homes and the focus of concern is the future of Enderby House which was built in about 1835 by Charles and George Enderby.

Elizabeth Enderby was the mother of General Gordon of Khartoum who spent his last night in England at the house.

Updates on the situation and consultations can be found on a new Enderby Wharf website.
