Metropolitan Borough of Woolwich

The Metropolitan Borough of Woolwich was a metropolitan borough in the County of London from 1899 to 1965. It had been left untouched by the local government reform of 1888 as it had already had similar reforms.

Most of it was amalgamated with the Metropolitan Borough of Greenwich to form the London Borough of Greenwhich, but small parts, including North Woolwich, north of the river were instead included in the London Borough of Newham.

Places in the borough included Woolwich, North Woolwich, Plumstead, and Eltham.
