New Charlton & beyond, London
New Charlton & beyond, London
The view from the summit of Cox's Mount, part of Gilbert's Pit in Maryon Park. The summit was home to a Roman hill fort in C1st-C4th, artefacts of which were discovered in 1915. In the 1850s Cox's Mount was also used by ships' captains on the River Thames to assist them in navigating. The former Gilbert's Pit, an area that was worked for fine sand from c.1780s until 1889 is now part of Maryon Park but is separated from it by this ascending spur of land that juts out towards the River Thames. This viewpoint is a fenced-off area of a few square metres only situated at the top of a flight of steps (of earth and railway sleeper construction) located adjacent to the Charlton Lane railway crossing.
