Other interesting points along the route include a mortuary that was turned into London's (probably) smallest museum though now lays tragically derelict, Execution Dock used by the Admiralty for over 400 years to hang pirates and later the scene of a Dr Who episode, the church where scenes from the Long Good Friday was filmed and where Sunhill Police Station (The Bill) was originally situated. All this and passing by a few derelict sites too.
