Listing Text

1. Isle of Dogs
The Ferry House
TQ 3878 31/1 Public House

Appearing on all the early maps of the area and probably of C17 origin associated
with the Greenwich Ferry. Now appears as a late C18/early C19 three storey stucco
faced building with later C19 and early C20 alterations for the built out plastered
public house front. The east front has upper floors set back behind the projecting
pub front, plain parapet with coping and slated mansard attic. Later C19 glazing
to sash windows. On the first floor is a projecting rectangular stuccoed bay with
a swept hipped lead roof probably built over a former porch and providing a ferry
look out. It has 2 irregular sized windows to the front, one of which might have
been a door on to a gallery or balcony; both have moulded architrave surrounds.
Adjoining to right is a late C19 extension with a 2 storey canted bay window.
Inside the first floor retains some plain C18 panelling and remains of a simple
C18 staircase balustrade above the ground floor
