I just came home from the New Cross Commoners field trip around Deptford. We explored the riverfront and its history related to the themes of commons and enclosures. It is sad to see how a lot of new and luxorious buildings are growing in the area, ignoring the sights rich heritage and forcing local residents to move out to cheaper areas. Deptford used to be a Royal Dockyard. It was also a homeland for sailors, coming from all over the world. Today the riverfront is almost inaccessible, since the land is being sold to (Chinese) capitalist stakeholders. (A B O U T  D E P T F O R D). With the help of the local connoisseurs we found the way to the river bank at the time where the waters were low, so we could afford to enjoy the view and have a lovely picnic.
