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 initiated a private sector led renewal. Private housing has come to dominate the Island in just a generation, since the creation of Canary Wharf. This walk traces the boundaries between private and public housing in this fascinating tour of the western Isle of Dogs, ending near Mudchute DLR.
