The borough of Newham in East London was largely built up from the 1800s onwards. Early industry on the river included tide mills and the Royal Docks and their ancillary services provided employment. Large areas of housing also followed the building of the railways with new industries and commerce developing in the area. Transport is still conspicuous in the landscape, not least at Stratford. The municipal pride of this era can be seen in the civic buildings in centres such as East Ham and elsewhere, as well as the public utilities. Culture and recreation, and places of worship, are also in evidence in buildings around the borough and the regeneration of recent decades following the closure of the docks and the 2012 London Olympics also define Newham.


Newham in 50 Buildings explores the history of this fascinating area of East London through a selection of its most interesting buildings and structures, showing the changes that have taken place over the years. The book will appeal to all those who live in Newham or who have an interest in the area.
