Default St Anne's through time

Thanks for that Ed

A sequence of Hawksmoor's church, St Anne's

First is Gascoyne's map. The site was Wefts Land (West's)
Note Church Lane predated the church. It was the way from the riverside hamlet of Limehouse to the footpath to St Dunstans Stepney.

Thanks Ed,

St Anne's is permitted to wear the Royal Navy Ensign at all times, reflecting its history. The tower with its prominent position to the river was a navigational mark and timepiece. (from the church site history)

You probably enjoyed this article in Spitalfields Life about the Sailors' Society. (click) A training center for boys entering the maritime trade. The buildings are circled on the 1890's Ordnance Survey.

The online Goad Plan reveals this was previously St Pelagia's Home for Destitute Girls, run by the Catholic Sisters from 1885 to before WWI. The women worked in the laundry onsite to defray the cost of free room and board, a common mode of operation for religious and charitable houses. Today these private residences are Listed buildings in the Conservation area.

Limehouse on the River Thames. Carey's Plan of 1795 shows the newly built Limehouse Cut, London's first canal. Marked here River Lea because it connected to there. Note Timber Yard which still appeared later.

The Goad Plan shows industry by the Cut, such as Forrest & Son Boat Builders and Blyth & Pascoe Timber Yard

Across the road from St Anne's is another listed building, but in poor condition

777 Commercial Road was built in 1869 by William Cubitt & Company as a sail-makers-and-ship-chandlers warehouse. Occupied by Caird & Rayner marine engineers from 1889 to 1972

That building has been semi derelict since at least the early 80s. I'm amazed it hasn't been refurbished for flats - it must back onto the canal.
