Greenland Dock
Greenland Dock is the oldest of London's riverside wet docks, located in Rotherhithe. It used to be part of the Surrey Docks, most of which have by now been filled in. Greenland Dock is now used for recreational purposes; it is one of only two functioning enclosed docks on the south bank of the River Thames. The original dock was built in the 17th century and expanded in the 19th. The docks closed in 1970.

Surrey Commercial Docks
The Surrey Commercial Docks were a large group of docks in Rotherhithe on the south bank of the Thames in London. The docks operated from 1696 to 1969. Many of the dock basins were named after the destination of the boats serviced by them, such as Greenland Dock, Norway Dock, Russia Dock and Canada Dock. Most were subsequently filled in and redeveloped for residential housing, and the area is now known as Surrey Quays.
