London’s industrial history tends to get overlooked, but areas like the Lea Valley have a history of innovation stretching back to the earliest phases of the Industrial Revolution.
Guide Rob Smith leads this three hour walk looking at how textile, chemical, shipbuilding, ceramics and many other industries flourished in the area between Stratford and Canning Town. It includes visiting the exterior of two listed buildings - Abbey Mills Pumping Station and House Mill.
* The walk is about three miles and ends at Canning Town Station. There is a break half way where refreshments and toilets are available, or bring packed lunch. There are a small number of steps and some uneven terrain.
