The Riverside, Tower Hamlets June 2017

Our walk was about 4¼ miles in length from Tower Hill towards Canary Wharf along the north bank of the Thames exploring the riverside parts of the four former hamlets of Wapping, Shadwell, Ratcliffe and Limehouse. Following wartime devastation and the closure of the docks in the late 60s, much of this formerly industrial area has undergone gentrification and we saw the one remaining dock, fine examples of converted warehouses together with historic pubs, private houses and two fine churches.
