1856. Engineer Colonel Lordmann. A dog leg ramp formed by a series of brick arches rising
up from Deptford High Street to the level of the tracks. It was built as a means if
getting the rolling stock up and down from track level and for carriages to reach the
station. An evocative relic of London's first railway opened 8 February 1836 (The London
and Greenwich Railway). It is the only surviving one of three such ramps and the earliest;
the others were at London Bridge and Greenwich.
