The East End - Limehouse, Mile End, Stepney

 

Our September 2018 excursion took us into London's East End. Water, weavers, wayfarers, and the way into the UK for centuries of refugees and entrepreneurs.

The walk, led by Philip Sayers, included docks and locks, a mosque, a park on stilts, university refectory lunch and an historic conservation area.

Two particular features stood out.  Maria Terrace, which "is a terrace of unusual 3-storey brick houses with gothic arches over the front doors and white gables over the second floor windows." 

And the Clock Tower on Stepney Green dedicated to "Stanley B. Atkinson, 1873-1910, Barrister at Law, Stepney Borough Councillor, Guardian of the Poor, Member of the Metropolitan Asylums Board. With two stone reliefs for education and benevolence."
