See the Woolwich Arsenal Gatehouse

Over on the 853 blog for the past week or so, Darryl has been highlighting how Woolwich was airbrushed out of riot coverage because it is not home to any fashionable media types. So, in order to once again highlight the existence of Woolwich, let's look at another local icon, the Woolwich Arsenal Gatehouse.

Constructed in 1829 as the main entrance to the Royal Arsenal, the Arch stands on the north side of Beresford Square. In 1996, it was rescued by the Greenwich Enterprise Board, who converted it into office space, a use which continues today.
