Educational visit to Creekside Discovery Centre On Thursday, we enjoyed a fabulous to trip Creekside to learn more about Deptford Creek as part of our investigation into rivers. Here are some photos of our experience. Deptford Creek was once located next to an abattoir and the workers had no problem disposing of animal carcasses in there. All kitted up to go wading in the creek! Fascinating. We found an old wrench that was used in old factories from the Victorian era! Chuffed We found an enormous mud crab! Some people could not believe it!
