Barking Riverside

Barking Riverside#7

A short distance from the site of the old Creekmouth Village, and just south of Thames View Estate, a new community is being born. Barking Riverside is one of the largest residential developments in Europe, with thousands of new homes planned for what was once industrial wasteland. The site already includes a school, a community centre and a wildlife garden, with the development receiving numerous awards.

In a bid to create a sense of history for this new community, many of the street names around Barking Riverside reference the families of Creekmouth.
