Mark Watson’s illustrated talk paints a bustling picture of Barking and Dagenham crammed with busy wharves, docks, barges and ships during a 200-year stretch of industrial boom.
For centuries both Barking and Dagenham relied upon the River Thames and its tributaries as vital transport routes, bringing in raw materials and transporting out finished products. Two hundred years of flourishing agricultural and industrial industries led to the creation of wharves and docks and barge and ship building industries. Join Mark Watson for an illustrated tour of the waterside industries of Barking and Dagenham, from rendering factories to car manufactories.
