Plaque Wording: Whales in the Thames
[top centre] Occasionally whales and seals are seen in the Thames. Since 1986 Common Seals have been spotted as far up as Richmond. A Lesser Rorqual Whale has been seen as well as a Bottle-Nosed Dolphin which was stranded at East India Dock. Such incidents have offered exciting distractions for the people of London over many centuries. [top left] Several incidents of whales in the Thames were recorded by John Evelyn, Deptford's famous 17th century diarist. In 1658 he noted that "a large whale was taken betwixt my land abutting on the Thames and Greenwich, which drew an in the concourse to sea it, by water, coach and on foote. It appeared first below Greenwich at low water, for at high water it would have destroyed all the boats.
[top right] After a long conflict it was killed with a harping yron, struck in the head, out of which spouted blood and water by two tunnels and after a horrid groan it ran quite on shore and died." Again in 1699 Evelyn wrote "After an extraordinary storm there came up the Thames a whale fifty-six feet long". In 1842 the capture of a young fin whale about 20 feet long provided quite an attraction. It was killed off Deptford Pier one Sunday by a number of watermen and its two ton body was displayed at the Bull and Butcher public house on the corner of Old King Street nearby. A printer in Flagon Row, Deptford quickly printed up some bills to advertise this "Extraordinary and Surprising Novelty" for sight-seers.
In 1965 there was great excitement when a school of about 20 whales was sighted off Woolwich pier. Billy Smart's Circus tried to catch one and enlisted the support of skin-divers, a gigantic fishing net and a rubber dingy {stet} to inflate under the unfortunate captive. They planned to take the whale to a temporary pool on Clapham Common then to a permanent aquarium at Windsor. All was frustrated when a policeman pointed out that anything caught in the Thames becomes property of the Queen and under the Whaling Industry Act you cannot catch a whale in British waters. The whale catchers were last seen edging the whales out of the river, hoping to catch one in the open sea.

Plaque Wording: Here rests William Hazlitt born April 10, 1778, Died 18 September 1830. He lived to see his deepest wishes gratified as he has expressed them in his Essay On The Fear Of Death: Viz: To see the downfall of the Bourbons, And some prospect of good to mankind (Charles X was driven from France 29th July 18?? "To leave some sterling work to the world" (He lived to complete his "Life of Napoleon". His desire that some friendly hand should consign him to the grave was accomplished to a limited but profound extent; on these conditions he was ready to depart and to have inscribed on his tomb "Grateful and Contented". He was the first (unanswered) Metaphysician of the age, a despiser of the merely Rich and Great, A lover of the People, Poor or Opressed, a hater of the Pride and Power of the Few, as opposed to the happiness of the Many. A man of true moral courage who sacrificed Profit and present fame to Principle. And a yearning for the good of Human Nature, who was a burning wound to an Aristocracy. That could not answer him before men and who may confront him before their Maker. He lived and died The Unconquered Champion of Truth, Liberty and Humanity. Dubitantes opera legite. This stone is raised by one whose heart is with him, in his grave.

Well Hall Pleasaunce, Well Hall Road, Eltham, London SE9 6SS John Arnold (Inventor) Edith Nesbit (Author)(Photos Taken: 28-Nov-2016)
Plaque Wording: Well Hall Pleasaunce An 18th century house standing on this site before its demolition in 1931 was for 23 years the home of Edith Nesbit (1858 - 1924), author of The Railway Children. During her somewhat unusual married life here with husband Hubert Bland, a founder member of the Fabian Society, she wrote many other books including The Phoenix and the Carpet, Five Children and It and the Wouldbegoods. Before Edith Nesbit took up residence here in 1899, there were other notable occupiers of this imposing three storey house. The famous clock maker, John Arnold, lived here from 1779 to 1799, seeking an answer to longitude, and the Rev. Charles Fryer, vicar of St John's church at Eltham in the 1840s. The house was used as the boarding section of Well Hall School in the 1880s and their bell can still be seen on the nearby Tudor Barn. However, Edith Nesbit, with her magic touch of writing children's stories which still live on today in television and film adaptations, is the name now most associated with Well Hall House. She loved living here in this part of South East London and especially enjoyed punting on the moat whilst entertaining her many literary friends, George Bernard Shaw and H.G. Wells among them. In 1915 and 1916 the grounds were used for garden parties, held to raise funds for The Pioneer Women Campaigners (connected with the Woolwich Labour Party). Hubert died at Well Hall in 1914. Three years later Edith married marine engineer Tommy Tucker known as 'Skipper', and in 1922 left Eltham for Jesson St. Mary, near Dymchurch Kent, where they had enjoyed numerous holidays exploring the countryside. It was here in 1924 that Edith died; she lies at rest at St. Mary-in-the-Marsh Church, Romney Marsh, Kent.

Plaque Wording: Greater London Council "We can all be refugees. Sometimes it only takes a day, Sometimes it only takes a handshake, Or a paper that is signed. We all came from refugees. Nobody simply just appeared, Nobody's here without a struggle, And why should we live in fear of the weather or the troubles? We all came here from somewhere"
from We Refugees by Benjamin Zephaniah
