Brecknock Road Pleating Company
My great grandparents ran the Brecknock Road pleating Company around 1910 to 1920 and my Grandmother worked there as a pleater until she was 16. I should like to know more about this. I know they had a beautiful Victorian house in Islington as I have photos of it & of them in their garden.

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

If anyone has any answers please email me [email protected]

Limehouse

Limehouse is a National Rail station, also connected to the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) network.

Limehouse station provides regional services connecting to and from Fenchurch Street, as well as light metro services offered by the DLR, linking to Tower Gateway or Bank. Limehouse station is situated approximately 2.8 km away from Fenchurch Street on the main line, with the next station being West Ham. On the DLR, it is positioned between Shadwell and Westferry.

The station was originally opened by the Commercial Railway, later known as the London and Blackwall Railway, in 1840 under the name Stepney. During that time, the Commercial Railway operated another station called Limehouse, located one stop to the east of Stepney. In 1923, Stepney was renamed Stepney East, and in 1926, the other Limehouse station was closed down.

In 1987, Stepney East changed its name to Limehouse shortly before the introduction of the DLR.

Castor Street Chinese Laundry, Limehouse While Chinese laundries first began to appear in Britain in Liverpool at the turn of the 20th century, one of the first in London was that run by Hop Lee in Castor Street. The Chinese moved into laundries as they were often denied other business opportunities. They were often successful because they offered a cheaper and better quality service than existing laundries.
