Many of the original buildings in this area were demolished during the construction of the London Docks and Wapping was further seriously damaged during the Blitz, the heavy and frequent bombing raids carried out over Britain in 1940 and 1941, during the Second World War. As the London Docklands declined after the Second World War, the area became run down, with the great warehouses left empty. The area’s fortunes were transformed during the 1980s by the London Docklands Development Corporation when the warehouses started to be converted into luxury flats like the one this door leads to.
