Shad Thames - just east of Tower Bridge, was the largest warehouse complex in the world during the Victorian era, but has now been re-imagined as  hundreds of posh urban nests. The iron bridge gantries connected the riverside Butler's Wharf with adjoining warehouses. Coo! It looks like a scene from Oliver! And it is. Parts were filmed here, & Bill Sikes fell to his death from nearby 'Jacob's Island' at the eastern end.
