Your All In London guide to Erith

This riverside district was once an important port used by ships to unload their cargo. It consisted of little more than a couple of streets up until the 60s, when the decision was taken to develop it into a modern town. Despite the shopping centres and sports facilities, the town centre appeared neglected and the sight of teenagers hanging around outside shops throughout the day has become a familiar one. Unemployment levels are higher than the national average, however the council is attempting to give the area a new lease of life by building new, affordable homes and replacing some of the older post-war estates with new constructions.
