Why do Thames Water not collect the 15 . Three meter lengths of blue plastic fencing, and old pipes etc. They left here for the last TWO Years, these cause an obstruction,as they halfway lying in the road,as no footpath down this road, and the cars going and exiting the park are getting damaged, also the public are in Grave Danger when trying to avoid your rubbish and the danger of your fences.

Old pub sign from the Rising Sun
Hi I have no connection to the area except that for the last 30+ years we’ve had an old pub sign hanging on our kitchen wall from the Rising Sun, Stanwell, which I believe was / is on the Oaks Rd. Happy to upload a photo if anyone can tell me how or where to do that!

The Hollies (1860 - 1900)
I lived in Holly Park Estate from 1969 I was 8 years old when we moved in until I left to get married, my mother still lives there now 84. I am wondering if there was ever a cemetery within The Hollies? And if so where? Was it near to the Blythwood Road end or much nearer to the old Methodist Church which is still standing although rather old looking. We spent most of our childhood playing along the old dis-used railway that run directly along Blythwood Road and opposite Holly Park Estate - top end which is where we live/ed. We now walk my mothers dog there twice a day. An elderly gentleman once told me when I was a child that there used to be a cemetery but I am not sure if he was trying to scare us children! I only thought about this recently when walking past the old Methodist Church and seeing the flag stone in the side of the wall with the inscription of when it was built late 1880

Canary Wharf

Canary Wharf is a large business development on the Isle of Dogs, centred on the old West India Docks.

Canary Wharf originally housed cargo warehouses that catered to the docks and derived its name from trade with the Canary Islands. In the past, the docks were the busiest globally until containerisation led to their decline.

In 1981, the London Docklands Development Corporation initiated a project to rejuvenate the derelict London docks, covering an area of eight square miles. Initially, the focus was on redeveloping light industrial schemes, and the primary occupant of Canary Wharf was Limehouse Studios, a television production company.

In 1984, while searching for a location for a client’s food processing plant, Michael von Clem, the head of the investment bank Credit Suisse First Boston, visited the Docklands. He discovered vacant land and, considering the possibility of relocating City of London offices, reached out to his counterpart at Morgan Stanley. They agreed that a substantial development with critical mass would be necessary and acknowledged the need for a new Tube line to make the project viable.

The Canadian developer Olympia and York took on the project and crucially agreed to cover 50% of the proposed cost of extending the Jubilee Line. Construction of Canary Wharf commenced in 1988, with the completion of the first phase in 1992.

However, the property market experienced a collapse in the early 1990s, resulting in a decline in tenant demand, and the Jubilee Line extension faced delays due to Olympia & York’s collapse. The project went into administration, and for a while, Canary Wharf appeared destined to become a deserted development accessible only via the Docklands Light Railway.

In December 1995, an international consortium, supported by the former owners of Olympia & York, acquired the project. At this point, the working population was approximately 13 000, and over half of the office space remained unoccupied. The pivotal moment in Canary Wharf’s recovery came with the long-awaited commencement of the Jubilee Line construction, a project the government aimed to complete in time for the Millennium celebrations. From that moment, prospective tenants began to view Canary Wharf as an alternative to traditional office locations. Subsequent phases were finalised, and new phases were added.

Today, Canary Wharf thrives with major banks and news media companies as tenants. The immediate consequence of Canary Wharf’s development was the escalation of land values in the surrounding area.

Currently, Canary Wharf is connected to central London through the Canary Wharf DLR station, established in 1991, the extension of the Jubilee Line to Canary Wharf tube station, inaugurated in 2000 and the 2022 Elizabeth Line.

Additionally, a river boat services from Canary Waterside connects Canary Wharf to the City of London and Greenwich.

’Blood Alley’ in the West India Docks, circa 1930. This photograph was taken at the North Quay shows a gang of dockers trucking bags of sugar beneath an awning of washed sacks that are hung out for drying at. ‘Blood Alley’ was the nickname given to roadway between the transit sheds and sugar warehouses because handling the sacks of sticky West Indian sugar badly chafed and cracked the dockers’ skin. This quay is now home to the Museum of London Docklands
