Has anybody any information on the proposed dock for St Thomas’ Hospital? I think I read somewhere that this had been granted planning permission, but it doesn’t appear to have materialised. There’s a gap between Lambeth North dock on the south of the river, and either Embankment (Horse Guards) dock or Smith Square, Westminster dock on the north of the river that make trips to and around Parliament difficult. A large dock at St Thomas’ would at least make docking there and walking over the bridge a more viable option.
I can’t see a more recent application in this area.
Interestingly I have a paper map which was handed out at the start of the scheme, showing not only the 300 which started off the scheme but also the proposed 100 next ones. It wasn’t a great success as a lot were never built, including the one you mention which on this map appears right outside the Florence Nightingale Museum. It would certainly be useful to have one there. Another location in that area which never happened was Portcullis House.
