Canning Town

Canning Town is the industrial and residential district built up during the 1850s to house the labourers working in the nearby Victoria Docks. It has been suggested that the town is named in honour of Lord Canning (a former Governor General of India) but this can be discounted. In fact the town takes its name from an industrial firm which was once centred in this area.

The original Great Eastern Railway station was opened on the south side of the Barking Road as CANNING TOWN in 1847, being moved to its present site in 1888. The adjacent Jubilee Line station was opened as CANNING TOWN on 14 May 1999.
