Victoria Hall, Victoria Wharf, Grove Street, SE8.
View in 2004, of interior, surprisingly well lit inside from the large windows, despite being obscured by the later installed partitions on ground and mezzanie floors.
Aside from the windows, the interior height from ground to ceiling was impressive, as well as the iron framework.

A part of the history of Deptford has now been lost, as developer City & Provincial order in the wreckers prior to their application to Lewisham Council for outline planning permission for the Oxestalls Road / Victoria Wharf site - to be known as The Wharves.

This leaves only the Victoria public house, a little further along Grove Street, as the only nineteenth century legacy building now left in existence on this site.
