Located less than 9 miles west of Canary Wharf, Dagenham is a vibrant, modern & multicultural community which forms the eastern part of the borough of Barking & Dagenham.
Historically, the population of the area significantly increased during the 20th century, with the parish of Dagenham becoming an urban district in 1926 and a municipal borough in 1938. It has formed part of Greater London since 1965. Population is set to rise further in coming years as major development projects are planned for the southern part of Dagenham (adjacent to the River Thames) which will form part of the London Riverside section of the Thames Gateway redevelopment area.
Well known for it’s links to the Ford Motor Factory, Dagenham is also exceptionally well served by both road & public transport links, with District Line stations operating from both Dagenham Heathway & Dagenham East & train services operating from both Dagenham Dock Station & Barking Station.
