About The Area
Limehouse Basin is a landscaped marina that occupies a sought after location between The City and Canary Wharf. Being only a 10 minute walk along The Thames pathway to the commercial district at Canary Wharf, Limehouse Basin is regarded as docklands prime residential location. It is home to a stylish collection of modern apartments blocks with balconies and views over the calm tranquil water of the marina. Limehouse Basin has its own locks leading out to the River Thames and from the Limehouse Cut and the Regents Canal. Narrow Street is now a regular jogging route for office workers at Canary Wharf and has limited local traffic helping make Limehouse a convenient place to live.
The name relates to the local lime kilns located by the river and operated by the large potteries that served shipping in the London docks. The earliest reference to Les Lymhostes occurs in 1356. It became the first Chinatown of London and in Victorian times had the colourful reputation as a mass of opium dens and illegal gambling joints. Limehouse housed docks industries such as ship building, ship chandlering and rope making.
The basin provides a navigable link between the Regent’s Canal and the River Thames. It was built by the Regent’s Canal Company. The history of the connection of the Basin to the River Thames and the Limehouse Cut is complex, it was orginally built in 1820 but in 1968, a short stretch of new canal was constructed to reconnect the Limehouse Cut to the Basin. Directly to the east is a small park, Ropemaker’s Fields.
