The abandoned Chambers Wharf, an 18th and 19th century shipyard. Up until the second war, the wharves in Bermondsey and Rotherhithe were handling a vast range of goods, with huge cold stores between Jamaica Road and the river. The discovery of a skeleton on the Thames foreshore by Chambers Wharf in February 2002, seemed to suggest that a Neolithic burial had been uncovered by erosion. This could have been the first burial of a Londoner known.
