This became part of Inner London in 1965, within the newly created county of Greater London.Deptford began life as a ford of the Ravensbourne (near what is now Deptford Bridge DLR station) along the route of the Celtic trackway which was later paved by the Romans and developed into the medieval Watling Street.The area referred to as North Deptford is the only part of the London Borough of Lewisham to front the Thames and is sandwiched between Rotherhithe and Greenwich.Much of this riverside estate is populated by the former Naval Dockyards, now known as Convoys Wharf, the Pepys Estate and some eastern fringes of the old Surrey Commercial Docks.Goldsmiths College's hall of residence, Rachel Mc Millan, in Creek Road was sold in 2001 for £79 million, and was subsequently demolished and replaced with the Mc Millan Student Village which opened in 2003 and provides accommodation for approximately 970 students of the University of Greenwich, Trinity Laban and Bellerbys colleges.A large former industrial site by the Thames called Convoys Wharf is scheduled for redeveloping into mixed use buildings.He and some of his fellow Russians stayed at Sayes Court, the manor house of Deptford.
Part of the estates around Sayes Court were purchased in 1742 for the building of the Navy Victualling Yard, which was renamed the Royal Victoria Victualing Yard in 1858 after a visit by Queen Victoria.Trinity House, the organisation concerned with the safety of navigation around the British Isles, was formed in Deptford in 1514, with its first Master being Thomas Spert, captain of the Mary Rose. The name "Trinity House" derives from the church of Holy Trinity and St Clement, which adjoined the dockyard.Diarist John Evelyn lived in Deptford at Sayes Court from 1652.The downward shift continued into the 20th century as the local population's dependency on the docks continued: as the docks themselves declined, so did the economic fortune of the inhabitants until the last dock, Convoys Wharf, closed in 2000.Deptford's northern section nearest the old docks contains areas of desolate council housing and deprivation typical of inner city poverty, though the area, along with neighbouring New Cross, has been touted as "the new Shoreditch" by some journalists and estate agents paying attention to a trendy arts and music scene that is popular with students and artists.
The Pepys Estate, opened on 13 July 1966, is on the former grounds of the Victualing Yard.
