North Greenwich


North Greenwich. Greenwich it seems was given its name by either the Saxon invaders of the sixth century who called it Green Village - from the Old English green and wic. Or maybe the invading Danes of the ninth century who called it the 'Green Reach', the reach referring to the straight part of the River Thames on which Greenwich stands. It was recorded as Grenewc in 964 and Grenvtz in the Domesday Book (1086). The place of course is famous for being on 0 degrees' of longtitude and therefore 'Standard Time' for most countries of the World is based on 'Greenwich Time'.

The station was opened as NORTH GREENWICH on 14 May 1999.
