Fish Island

Categories: Community / Clubs

An area of East London bounded by the River Lea Navigation, the Hertford Union Canal and the East Cross Route. In 1865 the land was purchased to be used as a gas works, by the Gas Light and Coke Company. It gets its name from several streets named for freshwater fish such as bream, dace and roach. It has a long tradition as a home to artists and art spaces, with a 2009 study identifying around 600 artists' studios.
