Chambers Wharf

Walking down the Thames path towards the docklands you pass dozens of old wharfs, all of which have been converted into posh flats – until, abruptly, the path stops because there’s an old, unrestored building left standing in the way – Chambers Wharf.

Interestingly, there are posts online suggesting that despite appearances it was in use recently as some sort of secure storage depot, with trucks coming and going at odd hours. There’s some evidence to suggest this – despite the general crappiness of the place, a few shuttered doors look rather new, and are covered by new security cameras.

In any case, it’s likely to be demolished soon to make, what else, more flats.
