Welcome to Clockhouse and New Charlton Community Centre
The Community Centre at a Glance
The Clockhouse is a central hub for the local Dockyard community providing affordable hall and room hire for educational activities, arts, sports and fitness activities, meetings, private functions and faith services. We host over 55 groups with a large number of affiliated community groups, who have long standing connections to the Clockhouse. We run a small community cafe Monday - Thursday 9am - 3pm where we will cook to order low cost fresh food.
The Centre is located within a mile of Woolwich Town Centre, near the Woolwich Ferry and the South Circular. The adjacent Thames Walk allows easy access to the Thames Barrier and to central Greenwich. Local transport links are excellent with 4 bus routes 161, 177 472, and 180 only 200 yards away and Woolwich Dockyard train station is a 4 minute walk.
On July 1st 2023 The Clockhouse officially merged with The New Charlton Community Centre. Based in Maryon Road SE7 the Community centre is a short walk away from the Clockhouse.
It exists to provide support to the local community by providing hall facilities for local groups to hold their meetings/activities/training/ educational purposes and office accommodation to third sector organisations.
Providing community services in Charlton, Woolwich and the Borough of Greenwich, the hall is hired out to a cross section of community groups as well as Centre run activities and is also available as a venue to hire for private functions.
