Transfer from Tower Hamlets (E1) to Luton Airport
The area of Shadwell started to develop mostly due to Thomas Neale, which became a landowner in the region in the 17th century. His massive investments resulted in the construction of a mill and the establishment of waterworks on huge ponds, which were created after the draining of the marsh. The region was mostly uninhabited and Thomas Neale renovated the waterfront, with properties behind. Shadwell grew to become a maritime village with tanneries, wharves, roperies, breweries, smiths, and many taverns, constructed close to the chapel of St Paul’s. Seventy-five sea captains are laid to rest in its churchyard; Captain James Cook had his child baptised in that place.
By the mid-eighteenth century, Shadwell Spa was founded, generating sulphurous waters, in Sun Tavern areas. In addition to its medicinal uses, salts were taken out from the waters and employed by local calicoprinters to repair their dyes.
Today the region is focused on the enclosed previous dock, Shadwell Basin, whose building ruined a great part of the previous settlement – by today degenerated into slums. The basin at the time formed the eastern entry to the London Docks, with a route leading west to St Katharine Docks. It is in fact a two dock basins, both built in the 19th century.
