South Dock :: Shared Description

South Dock is one of two surviving docks in the former Surrey Docks in Rotherhithe. It was built between 18071811 just south of the larger Greenland Dock, to which it is connected by a channel now known as Greenland Cut; it also has a lock giving access to the River Thames. Originally named the East Country Dock, it was renamed in 1850 when the Surrey Commercial Dock Company purchased and enlarged it. Timber and grain were the main produce imported and exported in the dock. The dock closed in 1970 and was redeveloped. It re-opened in 1994 as a marina, which is one of the largest in London.
