Many of you have been on Paul's Limehouse/Poplar & Wapping walks. This will be the final part of the Tower Hamlets trilogy exploring the Isle of Dogs proving that there is more to the Island than just the glass and steel of Canary Wharf. This tour incorporates topics covered in Paul's websites: dereliction,a lost canal,former docks plus hidden sites of interest amongst stories of social history and change in the area.
We visit plenty of interesting locations such as the old docks including the now sealed entrance of Millwall Dock,a lost canal, a few remaining pockets of dereliction, the site of previous Millwall football grounds before they moved south of the river, remains of the WW2 concrete anti-aircraft gun site at Mudchute now home to farm animals, evidence of an old rope works, a disused railway viaduct + lots more on this 4 hour walk. The tour ends near Crossharbour DLR where there will be an option to join Paul for an end of tour pint in a local pub.
Dogs are welcome on all tours
