History

Thames View Estate Thames View HotelR

It contains 2,000 homes and was built between 1954 and 1960 by Barking Borough Council. It was the largest development constructed by the council. The site to the south of Barking was marshland and housing was constructed using piles and raft foundations. The name alludes to the proximity to the River Thames.
