West Ham Stadium was a stadium that existed between 1928 and 1972 in Custom House, in east London (it was in the County Borough of West Ham, in the county of Essex, at the time of the stadium's construction). The stadium was built in 1928 on Prince Regent Lane, near the site of the present-day Prince Regent DLR station.The venue was used for greyhound racing and speedway on weekdays and had no connection at all with West Ham United football club, who played at the nearby Boleyn Ground, Upton Park from 1904 through 2016.Greyhound racingOriginsPlans for a very large stadium in a rural area near Plaiston Marsh, east of Canning Town were unveiled in the late 1920s and work began on the structure where an old sports ground (built in 1855) was situated that had belonged to the workers of the custom house of Royal Victoria Dock.The stadium was designed by Archibald Leitch, responsible for most of the major football stadia at the time including Anfield and Highbury. There was a large two tier stand accommodating 80,000 spectators with a smaller stand able to hold a further 20,000 bringing the capacity for the stadium up to 100,000. The track was the largest in Great Britain with a circumference of 562 yards and 123 yard straights. The standard trip of 550 yards did not even require a greyhound to complete s full lap. The track was lit by 70 x 750 watt lamps and used a special monorail train weighing 500lbs to carry the hare. There was also a very unusual design regarding the track surface which used turf laid on a wooden foundation which had been raised twelve inches above ground level which would consequently result in a very fast track. It was described as a well-sprung dance floor matted with a special fibrous substance.

Greenwich Peninsula Ecology Park
Distance: 1.6 mi Tourist Information
John Harrison Way
London, SE10 0QZ

The Greenwich Peninsula Ecology Park is a park situated along the River Thames in the Greenwich Peninsula in South London. The park reflects the nature of the original marshland on the peninsula. The park provides a haven for many different species of bird, plants and bugs and acts as an important brownfield land to control urban sprawl. The park is a partnership project of Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) and now managed by The Conservation Volunteers (TCV). The area of the park is 11 hectares and is half aquatic and half terrestrial. Development was completed in 2000 and the park opened to public in 2002. In April 2011 the Trust took on the management of a new site nearby, the Meantime Nursery, with aims to create on vacant development land a resource for the community and for nature conservation. The park is a Site of Borough Importance for Nature Conservation, Grade I. The Greenwich Peninsula Ecology Park contains multiple man-made, fresh water habitats within a small area, resulting in high biodiversity and the presence of amphibians, fish, and insects. Two lakes, marshland, shingle beach, alder carr, shallow pools, willow beds and meadow are contained within the park. The two lakes are pumped water from a chalk borehole deep underground to ensure the water quality is suitable for wildlife. Water level is controlled carefully to mimic natural seasonal variations, so that water levels are low in summer and high in winter. The lakes are surrounded by marshes where reeds grow, providing shelter and food for birds, including grebes and warblers. The shingle beach has sandy soil and rocks for dragonflies to breed and butterflies to bask. The carr is a waterlogged woodland dominated by alder, which tolerates submerged roots in wet ground. There is also dead wood in the area, providing habitats for invertebrates. Willow in the park is coppiced on a regular basis and stocked up as mulch to lie on the ground to retain moisture and prevent grass from growing. Shallow pools are found in the willow woodland and are a habitat for frogs and invertebrate. Ephemeral and seasonal pools are found next to the bat tower. When the pool dries up, specialised invertebrates and small crustaceans dominate the habitat. The meadowland is dominated by wildflowers, which provides food to bees and butterflies, the primary producers in the food chain. Several species of moths previously thought to be locally extinct were found in the Ecology Park recently.

Thames Barrier

Eastmoor St, Charlton
London, E16 2

020 7476 3741

The Thames Barrier is a movable flood barrier in the River Thames east of Central London. It has been operational since 1984 and prevents the floodplain of all but the easternmost boroughs of Greater London from being flooded by exceptionally high tides and storm surges moving up from the North Sea. When needed, it is closed (raised) during high tide; at low tide it can be opened to restore the river's flow towards the sea. Built approximately 3km due east of the Isle of Dogs, its northern bank is in Silvertown in the London Borough of Newham and its southern bank is in the New Charlton area of the Royal Borough of Greenwich. The report of Sir Hermann Bondi on the North Sea flood of 1953 affecting parts of the Thames Estuary and parts of London was instrumental in the building of the barrier.Geography and backgroundLondon is vulnerable to flooding and from heavy tides closing in. A storm surge generated by low pressure in the Atlantic Ocean sometimes tracks eastwards past the north of Scotland and may then be driven into the shallow waters of the North Sea. The surge tide is funnelled down the North Sea which narrows towards the English Channel and the Thames Estuary. If the storm surge coincides with a spring tide, dangerously high water levels can occur in the Thames Estuary.

The Millennium Mills is a derelict turn of 20th century flour mill in West Silvertown on the south side of the Royal Victoria Dock, between the Thames Barrier and the ExCel exhibition centre alongside the newly built Britannia village, in Newham, London, England. The Mills are currently undergoing a major renovation as part of a £3.5billion redevelopment of Silvertown.Along with Millennium Mills, there remains a small section of the now destroyed Rank Hovis Premier Mill and a restored grade II listed grain silo, labelled the ‘D’ silo. Described as a "decaying industrial anachronism standing defiant and alone in the surrounding subtopia", the Millennium Mills has become a well-loved icon of post-industrial Britain and has made its way into many aspects of popular culture, being used as a backdrop in films and television shows such as Ashes to Ashes and Derek Jarman's The Last of England. Millennium Mills is also a destination for Urban Explorers despite high security, dangers of structural weakness, ten-storey drops and asbestos, and there are many reports and internal photos of the site.

The Royal Victoria Dock is the largest of three docks in the Royal Docks of east London, now part of the redeveloped Docklands.HistoryThe Royal Victoria Docks are 14km from London Bridge, and 36km from Gravesend, and were designed and engineered by George Parker Bidder. Although the structure was in place in the year 1850, it was opened in 1855 on a previously uninhabited area of the Plaistow Marshes, it was the first of the Royal Docks and the first London dock to be designed specifically to accommodate large steam ships. It was also the first to use hydraulic power to operate its machinery and the first to be connected to the national railway network via the Eastern Counties and Thames Junction Railway section of what is now the North London Line. It was initially known as "Victoria Dock"; the prefix "Royal" was granted in 1880.The dock was connected through a line which ran between Canning Town and North Woolwich. When the Royal Dock was first built the railway cut along the docks; to correct this a swingbridge over the entrance to the dock was built. This however slowed down journey time, and so a new line was built in 1855 to take the route around the north side of the dock to Silvertown, and a station at Custom House opened where it re-connected with the original line. The older southern line was kept to serve local factories, where it was known as the Silvertown Tramway.The Royal Victoria Dock consisted of a main dock and a basin to the west, providing an entrance to the Thames on the western side of the complex. The dock was deeply indented with four solid piers, each 152 m long by 43 m wide, on which were constructed two-storey warehouses. Other warehouses, granaries, shed and storage buildings surrounded the dock, which had a total of 3.6 km of quays.

Das Royal Victoria Dock ist das größte von drei Hafenbecken der Royal Docks im Londoner Eastend und gehört heute zu den Docklands.GeschichteEs wurde 1855 auf einem vorher unbebauten Gelände der Plaistow Marshes eröffnet und war das erste der Royal Docks und das erste Hafenbecken in London, das für die Aufnahme großer Dampfschiffe ausgelegt war. Als erstes Hafenbecken war es mit hydraulisch betätigten Schleusen ausgestattet und war das erste, das über einen Eisenbahnanschluss (heute North London Line) verfügte. Es bestand aus dem großen Hafenbecken und einem kleinen Ein- und Ausfahrtsbasin auf der Westseite des Komplexes, das die Zufahrt zur Themse vermittelte. Das Hafenbecken besaß vier Piers, jeder davon 152 m lang und 43 m breit, auf denen zweistöckige Lagerhäuser gebaut wurden. Weitere Lagerhäuser, Getreidesilos, Schuppen und Lagergebäude waren um das Hafenbecken angeordnet, das eine Kailänge von 3,6 km hatte.Das Hafenbecken war sofort wirtschaftlich erfolgreich, weil es allen Schiffen mit Ausnahme der allergrößten Dampfschiffe Liegeplätze bot. 1860 nahm es bereits eine Jahrestonnage von 850.000 t. auf; das war doppelt so viel wie die der London Docks, viermal so viel wie die der St. Katharine Docks und 70 % mehr als die Tonnage der West India Docks und East India Docks zusammen. Durch deutsche Bomben wurde es im Zweiten Weltkrieg stark beschädigt, aber anschließend wieder repariert. Ab 1960 aber hatte das Royal Victoria Dock – wie alle Londoner Hafenanlagen – einen starken Rückgang des Schiffsverkehrs zu verzeichnen, da die Schifffahrt auf Containerfrachter setzte und daher die Liegeplätze themseabwärts nach Tilbury verlegt wurden. Schließlich wurde auch das Royal Victoria Dock zusammen mit den anderen Royal Docks 1980 für den Handelsschiffverkehr geschlossen.

Upton Park is an area of the East London borough of Newham, centred on Green Street which is the boundary between West Ham and East Ham. West Ham United Football Club formerly played at the Boleyn Ground, commonly known as Upton Park.The term ‘Upton Park’ first applied to a housing estate developed to the east of West Ham Park in the 1880s. The estate took its name from the adjacent village of Upton with the suffix ‘Park’ added for marketing reasons. The estate's developers paid for a new station to be built which was named after the estate.As a consequence the area surrounding the station became known as Upton Park rather than the term being limited to the original housing estate.FootballThe southern end of Green Street runs alongside the western edge of the Boleyn Ground, the former home ground of West Ham United FC. The club initially rented the land from Green Street House, known locally as Boleyn Castle because of its imposing nature and an association with Anne Boleyn. The football stadium has long been commonly known as Upton Park.An unrelated football club of the area, Upton Park FC, were early pioneers in the game, and represented Great Britain at the 1900 Summer Olympics football tournament, where they won the gold medal. They played their home games in east Ham Park.
