Facts about Wapping London E1W
Wapping is a district in East London, in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. Wapping lies between the north bank of the River Thames and the ancient thoroughfare simply called The Highway.
The construction of the London Docks meant demolishing many of the original buildings with further damage caused to the remaining buildings during the Blitz. As the London Docklands declined after the Second World War, the area became run down, with the great warehouses left empty. The London Docklands Development Corporation transformed the area’s fortunes during the 1980s by starting to convert the warehouses into luxury flats.
Rupert Murdoch moved his News International printing and publishing works into Wapping in 1986, resulting in a trade union dispute that became known as the “Battle of Wapping”.
The area was first settled by Saxons, from whom it takes its name (meaning literally “[the place of] Wæppa’s people”).
Wapping’s proximity to the river gave it a strong maritime character for centuries. This changed radically in the 19th century during the construction of the London Docks. Wapping’s population plummeted by nearly 60%, with many houses destroyed by the construction of the docks and giant warehouses along the riverfront. Squeezed between the high walls of the docks and warehouses, the district became isolated from the rest of London, although some relief was provided by Brunel’s Thames Tunnel to Rotherhithe. The opening of Wapping tube station on the East London Line in 1869 provided a direct rail link to the rest of London.
Wapping was also the site of ‘Execution Dock’, where pirates and other water-borne criminals faced execution by hanging from a gibbet constructed close to the low water mark. Their bodies would be left dangling until they had been submerged three times by the tide.
Said to be England’s first, the Marine Police Force was formed in 1798 by magistrate Patrick Colquhoun and a Master Mariner, John Harriott, to tackle theft and looting from ships anchored in the Pool of London and the lower reaches of the river. It’s base remains in Wapping High Street and now known as the Marine Support Unit. The Thames Police Museum, dedicated to the history of the Marine Police Force, is currently housed within the headquarters of the Marine Support Unit, and is open to the public by appointment.
In 1811, the horrific Ratcliff Highway murders took place nearby at The Highway and Wapping Lane.
