LOCATION 
Greenhithe is situated between the River Thames and Watling Street (the London, Dover Road) and was a suitable landing place for ships. In Roman times it was known as Gretenrsce, and by 1363 Grenehuth. It appears in the 1778 'History and Topographical Survey of the County of Kent' : "There are several wharves in Greenhithe which were for the landing and shipping of corn, wood, and other commodities, but the greatest traffic arose from the chalk and lime. The area offers may facilities including the Bluewater shopping centre with it’s array of shops, restaurants, eateries and multiplex cinema, river walks, pubs and supermarket. Greenhithe also has a mainline railway station with services to London and is within easy reach of the Ebbsfleet International Station. There are road links from the area giving access to A2/M2, A20/M20, M25 and Dartford Tunnel.
