Plumstead was originally part of a monastery in the ninth century and then came under the rule of William the Conqueror in 1066, who then handed it over to his brother Odo, Bishop of Bayeux.
In the 18th century, it expanded rapidly and housing was developed for workers at the Royal Arsenal.
At the time, the most popular type of housing was two-up, two-down terraced housing, which was often built close to the river Thames.
Larger housing was constructed for wealthier residents near Plumstead Common.
As mentioned above, Plumstead is a culturally diverse community. It is very laid-back, relatively safe and very close to other central areas of London.
Plumstead Common is where people tend to congregate, mainly because there is not a great deal of other places to spend time with friends and loved ones, apart from the various restaurants and cafés in the area.
One of the best areas in Plumstead is Shooters Hill, which has many ancient landmarks and places of interest.
Plumstead is well served by a number of facilities for the local community. This includes adventure playgrounds for young children, sporting facilities such as basketball courts and football pitches, as well as decent transport.
