Shad Thames, London


  • Located in Southwark, London, England
  • Road just off the River Thames and close to the Design Museum providing a fascinating insight into a part of London's history
  • 'Shad Thames is the best surviving example of the type of street that was very common in London's Docklands before any redevelopment had taken place. It is now almost unique. Flanked by tall warehouses on either side, it is crossed at different heights by lattice, wrought iron bridges. Across these, the dockers would push barrows when transferring tea, spices and other food stuffs from the riverside warehouses to those further inland. Beside the large, ornate iron gates the dockers would gather for the 'call on' twice a day in the hope of being hired for half a day's work in the warehouses.' (source: information board on site)
