Globe Wharf 1937 was built in c.1883 by A.P. Keen and Co. as a granary, handling wheat, barley and rice. In 1924 Globe Wharf was converted for storing and milling rice by Thames Rice Milling.

When it was complete, Norway dock was connected to Greenland Dock, with no independent access to the Thames. All vessels using Norway Dock would first enter Greenland Dock and then enter through Norway Cut, the connection passage between the two.
