History[edit]

Mudflats on the Thames, with the Queen Elizabeth II Bridge in the far background

Pre-medieval[edit] Work carried out at the former British Gypsum site in Church Manorway by the Museum of London
Museum of London
Archaeological Service shows that the area was covered by a dense forest of oak, yew, and alder during the Neolithic Period, which by the Bronze Age
Bronze Age
had given way in part to sedge fen.[1] The museum's work at the former site of Erith
Erith
School in Belmont Road revealed traces of prehistoric settlement, and of a substantial community or farmstead in the first century AD.[2] Anglo-Saxons[edit] Following the collapse of Roman rule at the beginning of the 5th century, Britain was colonised by Anglo-Saxon invaders from northern Europe. The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle
Anglo-Saxon Chronicle
records that they won the Battle of Crecganford (thought to be modern Crayford) in 457 and shortly after claimed the whole of Kent. Their different way of life was reflected in their pattern of settlement. The town and country estates of the Roman bureaucrats gave way to a network of villages, occupied by warriors and farmers. Erith
Erith
was one such village and has a Saxon name, originally Ærre hyðe meaning "old haven".[3] There was probably a church on the site of the present St John the Baptist's during the Anglo-Saxon period.[4] The early settlement was based around it, meaning that the centre of Erith
Erith
was once west of its current location. Medieval[edit] The earliest reference to the area is in a Latin charter of 695 recording a grant by the Bishop of the East Saxons of certain lands at Erith.[citation needed] The surrounding area was known as Lesnes or Lessness, which is mentioned in the Domesday Survey. After the Norman Conquest, Lessness passed into the possession of Bishop Odo.[5] In 1315, a Royal Charter
Royal Charter
was granted for a market to be held in Erith every Thursday. However, it was noted in 1776 that the market had long been discontinued.[6] Erith
Erith
owes its existence to the Thames and was, until the 1850s, essentially a small riverside port, given prominence by King Henry VIII's decision to open a naval dockyard there, approximately where the Riverside Gardens are now. Henry's famous warship, Henri Grâce à Dieu, was fitted out there in 1515.[7] Following the death of George Talbot, 4th Earl of Shrewsbury
George Talbot, 4th Earl of Shrewsbury
in 1538, Erith
Erith
'alias Lysnes' was granted to his widow, Elizabeth, by Henry VIII 'with all its members and appurtenances, to hold in capite, by knight's service.'[8] Up until the 19th century Erith
Erith
remained a popular anchorage. Ships often discharged some cargo there to reduce their displacement before entering the shallows upstream. Industrial era[edit] In 1797 Edward Hasted described Erith
Erith
as "consisting of one small street of houses, which leads to the water side", and mentions two annual fairs, at Ascension and Michaelmas.[9] In 1831 Erith's population was 1533 – it was described in 1840 as being "composed chiefly of two streets, one leading down to the water side, the other branching off to the left towards the church."[10]

By 1849 Erith
Erith
was enjoying a short spell as a riverside resort. Its pier and nearby hotel gave hospitality for day-trippers arriving on Thames pleasure boats or by railway.[7] The Local Government Act 1894
Local Government Act 1894
brought into existence Erith
Erith
Urban District, which became the Municipal Borough of Erith
Municipal Borough of Erith
in 1938. It included Northumberland Heath
Northumberland Heath
and Belvedere. Erith
Erith
Iron Works was established in 1864 in Anchor Bay by William Anderson.[11] From 1881 Erith
Erith
was home to a large cable works founded by William Callender. This became British Insulated Callender's Cables (BICC), and eventually Pirelli, which announced its partial closure in 2003. The remainder became Prysmian. 20th century[edit] Engineering became an important industry around Erith, with armaments and cables being the main products. Vickers
Vickers
was a major employer and was linked to the Royal Arsenal

at nearby Woolwich. Another local firm was Callender's Cables).[7]

During the First World War Erith
Erith
was an important area for the manufacture of guns and ammunition, largely due to the presence of the large Vickers
Vickers
works. The town suffered heavy bomb damage in the Second World War, mainly due its position on the riverside near the Royal Arsenal. The bomb damage and a gradual decline in local trade prompted major redevelopment in the 1960s.[7]

Riverside Shopping Centre

In 1961, plans were put forward to redevelop Erith
Erith
into a modern, sleek shopping and working environment. This involved clearing the sub-standard housing by the riverside and altering the street layout. Some of the buildings erected, particularly the social housing tower blocks, are of a brutalist form that typified the overspill estates put up by almost all councils in England's major cities as an affordable way of clearing the slums.[12] In 1965, under the London Government Act 1963, Erith
Erith
became part of the London Borough of Bexley. Demolition of the old town started in 1966 and continued in phases until 1980, leaving only a few reminders of the old town centre. Many of the original Victorian buildings were lost, but some of the original townscape remains, including the White Hart in the High Street and St John's Church in West Street.[7] Erith
Erith
is the site of the Erith
Erith
Oil Works, originally British Oil & Cake Mills (BOCM). It now processes various seeds into vegetable oils.[citation needed]

Regeneration[edit] Since the late 1990s Erith
Erith
has been undergoing significant changes, with the Erith
Erith
Western Thames Gateway[13] project being the culmination. The regeneration falls within the remit of the Thames Gateway project, with Erith
Erith
as a key focus[14] for Bexley
Bexley
Council, as its only population centre on the River Thames. Since 2000 a significant number of new flats have been constructed by the river by private companies. The Erith
Erith
Western Gateway will include a significant number of new riverside flats,[15] and is expected to continue the regeneration of the area, hitherto a large underused area of the town centre. Bexley
Bexley
Council is seeking to produce a mixed-use development with a potential of 6,000 sq.m of new commercial space and over 500 new homes.[15] Geography[edit] Erith
