Deptford is a vibrant and diverse community in London that offers a great deal of opportunities for studying Geography. We are blessed to be living in an Alpha ++ World City and have a cultural heritage the extends many centuries back in history and spans across all the inhabited continents. These pages intend to highlight some of the opportunities (and threats) that we face as a community in the twenty first century. It will take some time to build so keep coming back and let us know what you think.
