Howland Estate (part), Lower Road, Rotherhithe Street, SE16
Just south of Neptune Street and consists of two blocks - one shown is Wells House and behind it is Ritchie House. All names connected with the Great Howland Wet Dock. John Howland (son of Sir Giles) financed the dock as a dowry for his 13 year old daughter who was about to be married. Wells was the man who designed the dock and Ritchie bought the dock in 1806. In 1763 the name of the dock was changed to "Greenland Dock".
