Deptford: Former Payne's Paper Wharf
Deptford: Former Payne's Paper Wharf
Only the six arch Italianate fašade of the riverside wall of the original building here survives, as the structure behind and above is a modern residential development. The fašade was the riverside frontage of a marine boiler works, constructed about 1860 for J Penn and Sons, marine engineers, and is shown as such on the Ordnance Survey map of 1873-1874. Only by the time that the 1951 map was published is it shown as Payne's Wharf. The surviving fašade is a Grade II Listed structure.

The old maps also show that the Surrey side terminus of the original ferry between Deptford and the Isle of Dogs was to the right of the building and that the street that the current building is on, Borthwick Street, was once known as Butchers Row.
