The Nelson Dry Dock, as seen from The Thames.

Nelson Dock is the only dry dock left in London and was known as Cuckolds Point in the 17th and 18th century

This dry dock was used for shipbuilding from the 17th Century and is not thought to be named after the famous admiral but possibly another Nelson.

Warships and clippers were built here along with many other ships until the dock closed in 1968.
