Shadwell Basin is a grand survivor among many the old dock basins of East London. Although only now used by small craft, it’s a reminder of how the area was one of the starting points for the maritime dominance that made London the trade capital of the world. St Paul’s Church was a focus for returning sailors, with 75 sea captains buried in its churchyard. An exception is the great Captain James Cook – resident here for a couple of years - who met his tragic fate on the other side of the world.
