Diversion at Greenwich’s Trinity Hospital

Greenwich Power Station seen from the peninsula

The river path in front of Trinity Hospital, on the east side of Greenwich, is due to close shortly.

The river wall is being  rebuilt which means that the path may not reopen until next August.

An interesting background to the diversion and what to see can be found on Peter Kent’s RiverWatch Returns site.

Diversion Directions

If walking from the Greenwich Peninsula (where the path has recently reopened) you reach Ballast Quay.

Pass the Cutty Sark pub to walk across Anchor Iron Wharf where there is a large anchor.

Before the power station go left into Hoskins Street. There is  power station wall to the right and the road is partly surfaced with attractive stone setts.

At  junction turn right along Old Woolwich Road to pass the back of the London Transport power station and the modern entrance to Trinity Hospital.

At another main junction go right into Eastney Street which runs direct to gates on to river.

Go left along narrow Crane Street to Greenwich.
