Canning Town Station, 1933. The station was opened by the Eastern Counties and Thames Junction Railway as "Barking Road" in 1847, and was situated to the south of the road. It was rebuilt on the same site in 1873 and renamed Canning Town. The station was again re-built north of the Barking Road in 1888, being further rebuilt in 1932 and 1979. A replacement booking hall was constructed in the 1960s and was demolished in 1994.

This walk which largely uses photos taken in 2012 is along the North Woolwich Line in London, opened in 1846 between Stratford and Canning Town, but largely closed in 2006 and since rebuilt for DLR and Crossrail use.
