     The remains of the Grand Surrey Canal. Today, this stretch of the canal has become "Surrey Canal Road". Much of the area has since been substantially rebuilt, and will be rebuilt again over the next few years as part of a massive regeneration project.

    If you zoom right in and look closely, you can see that this stretch links up with the section described in my other comment pin (see below). It can just be made out behind a row of houses.

     Remnant of the Surrey Canal, most of which had long since been bought up and replaced by the London Bridge - Croydon line (via Forest Hill). This section was still in use as part of Deptford's docks complex, although that, too, was disappearing fast by this time. The now-vanished branch line crosses the canal near the top of the image.

    Correction: The stretch of the canal from New Cross Gate (or very near it) to Croydon was a separate venture: the Croydon Canal. The "Grand Surrey Canal" provided that canal's link with the Thames.



    The junction between the two canals was in the vicinity of what is now Cold Blow Lane.

     The "Old Kent Road" branch from Surrey Docks station. At this time, the line was still extant and in use. This is the line that has now been reopened as part of the East London Line's Phase 2 extension to allow trains to run to Clapham Junction via Denmark Hill.

     Branch line to Deptford's docks complex (known as "Commercial Docks"). Now long gone; very few traces remain, although a stretch of embankment still remains in one of the industrial estates in the old docks area. This is the point where the branch crosses what is now the East London Line. At this time, the station now known as "Surrey Quays" was still known as "Surrey Docks", renamed from "Deptford Road" in 1911.
