Hardly to be seen as an industrial site - but their latest newsletter has some information about the park as a workplace.
Their newsletter gives on its front page news about the archaeological dig at the Old Keepers Cottage. Basically they have found some walls - but hope to have an exhibition about it soon. A handout from the park also says how they aim to reveal more of the park's history - and need the ideas and help of local people They have a public opening meeting on 22nd November (tomorrow!!)7-9 at West Greenwich Library.
