This covers a long area of riverside – from the current Alcatel boundary to Bay Wharf at the footpath which now returns to Tunnel Avenue. Only the central section is still called Morden Wharf.
The pattern of land use is complex and the network of plots changes completely during the nineteenth century.
In the 1890s the north east corner of the site was transversed by Tunnel Avenue as part of the building of the Blackwall Tunnel.
Pre-industrialisation the riverside strip was known as Great and Little Pits while the inland section was a series of field, including one known as Lady Marsh.
