School Square, SE10

Place Name

Showing the sort of originality of thought that developers through the ages have shown for place names this is a reference to the Millennium Primary School based in the heart of the Millennium Village. These names are clue enough as to when they were built, around the turn of 2000, when Greenwich, as the birthplace of the meridian, became the focus of worldwide attention. Before the land was reclaimed, this was part of Greenwich Marshes, a barren peninsula outpost inhabited only by ammunition works, magazine storage and a few heavy industries. After the Second World War the ammunition works were gone and replaced with a laundry, allotment gardens and a huge slag heap.
