Open House at the Master Shipwright’s in Deptford

We’re delighted to announce that we will be opening up the Master Shipwright’s House again to the general public for Open House on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th September.

This is a great opportunity to have a look around this really special house and its wonderfully tranquil gardens; a secret Deptford gem where the master shipwright overseeing the work in Deptford’s Royal Dockyard would have lived.

As well as getting the rare opportunity to see behind the big black gates at the end of Watergate Street, visitors will be able to meet the team behind the Lenox Project charity and its sister project Sayes Court Garden CIC.

The original Lenox was built in the double dry dock right next to the house, and you’ll be able to get an idea of exactly how big the ship was (and how big the replica will be!).

Visit our exhibition trailer and see our restored Saker cannon, or just relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

We’ll be bringing visitors up to date with our plans for the year ahead, and recruiting volunteers to join us in the next steps of getting this exciting project off the ground.

And did I mention cake…? Teas, coffees and homemade cakes will be available with all proceeds going to support the Lenox Project.
