The Deptford Project

The Deptford Project have a website. They say:

The Deptford Project Café is the first step in a project to completely regenerate the area around Deptford Train Station and the old Victorian carriage ramp.

Soon, Deptford Train Station will be rebuilt. When it’s complete, work will start to transform the area that was the original railway yard. A new and important public space with a weekend creative industries market, shops and galleries will form a new heart to Deptford High Street using the original railway arches and restoring the carriage ramp to its former glory. Eventually a new residential building, designed by world-famous architect, Richard Rogers, will be built at the back of the carriage ramp bringing new life to the area and connecting the ramp back to the railway line as it was when it was built as the first suburban railway station in London in 1836.

    That sounds great – may steal this info for a blog post later if I can be bothered!

    On second thoughts, is it really progress for the dump which is Deptford High Street to be turned into some wanky art project? Discuss!
