The Isle of Dogs had a rich history of public housing, including outstanding 1920s Homes for Heroes estates built by radical Poplar councillors in the era before the Docklands Development Corporation . But private housing has come to dominate the Island in just a generation, since the creation of Canary Wharf. Discover how much of the islanders' public housing tradition survives in this fascinating tour of the western Isle of Dogs, ending near Mudchute DLR.
