Rate this:
The Thames Ironworks was an East London, Thames-side shipbuilding company that gave rise to West Ham United. The company also undertook civil engineering, marine engines, electrical engineering, and motor cars, and produced ironwork for Brunel's Royal Albert Bridge and HMS Warrior. Today the Thames Ironworks Heritage Trust is restoring a number of fully operational lifeboats. Author Brian Belton, a member of the trust, follows the Hills family (owners), and the Works' contribution to maritime history. This illustrated history also considers the development of the soccer traditions of the area and the place of the Works in the development of the East London and Dockland communities.
