London's Lost Village: Derelict London - Bow Creek Walking Tour
Join Derelict London tour guide Paul Talling for a walk of Bow Creek.
Beginning with the arrival of the East India Docks and Corporation of Trinity House at the start of the nineteenth century, we will chart the growth of the peninsula from remote marshland to industrial hub. In addition to shipbuilders, glass workers and sugar refiners, a small residential community emerged during the Victorian era. Bordered by water on all sides, the existence of such a community was unknown to many who lived just a half mile away.
Through research, short films, podcasts, and live events, our project will explore how this hidden but thriving community came to be dubbed 'London's Lost Village'. Since 1998 the area has been rejuvenated by the arrival of Urban Space Management, who transformed the area into a centre for artists and creative industries. Further development in the last few years has seen a residential community - or village - begin to develop on the peninsula once again.
