Royal Artillery Quay, Erebus Drive
Royal Artillery Quays
Built in 2000 and consisting of 8 river facing towers Royal Artillery Quays was formerly part of the Royal Arsenal site until the 1960's when the Ministry Of Defence gave 1000 acres of predominantly marshland over to be developed for much needed housing.
The marshland had been used as a site for testing munitions manufactured in the Royal Arsenal as the boggy land dulled the explosions and the area was largely uninhabited at the time.

The hallway of the flat is L-shaped with access to all rooms off it and it has a large useful storage/airing cupboard built in.
The living/dining room is a good size with ample space for sofa's, dining table and other furniture. There is a double glazed window looking to the east and glazed doors to the balcony looking towards the river.
