Did You Know?
The Royal Arsenal began over 400 years ago when it was used as a store in support of the Greenwich, Deptford and Woolwich dockyards. Records from 1565 show that an Ordnance store was in existence supplying guns, cannon balls and gun carriages to the ships being constructed.
At this time it was referred to as 'The Warren' and remained as this until 1805 when King George III thought it wasn't an appropriate name and asked for it to be re-named as 'Arsenal' The Master-General agreed and, as a compliment to the King, instructed that henceforth the name would be 'The Royal Arsenal'
Positioned on the 2nd floor of the building and easily reached by a short lift journey we have a purpose built two bedroom 1 bathroom flat with a full width balcony and parking.
Internally the flat is well laid out with very little wasted space in the hallway which has a wood effect floor continuing through to the living room.
