Woolwich in Film: The Silent Playground

Alt title: “My Woolwich video ended up with loads of Deptford”

I hope you enjoy my first video!

The Silent Playground is a 1963 British drama movie filmed in south east London. This video looks at the Woolwich parts, as well as what turned out to be Deptford!

Pictures of old Woolwich are from Chris Mansfield, unless otherwise stated https://www.chrismansfieldphotos.com/

Pictures of modern Woolwich are by me unless otherwise stated.
