Stag do paintball events meet industrial estate churches just behind the Thames in New Charlton. Next door there’s a go-kart track, and beyond that the Thames Barrier. The area off the river is an odd and largely undocumented corner of the neighbourhood; a trading estate and light industrial zone fallen on hard times, tucked up against the aggregates and tarmac plants, waiting for redevelopment to come.
