Regents Canal and Dock Co

From Graces Guide

of 5 Lloyds Avenue, Fenchurch Street, London.

1812 The company was incorporated.

The works of the Regent's Canal Company consist of a navigable canal connected with the Grand Junction Canal at Paddington, and which empties into the Thames at Limehouse.[1]

The Regents Canal was completed in 1820, and is often referred to as London's Own Canal. It is 8.5 miles long, and circles London with the Thames. It has been consistently busy since its completion.

In 1855 the Regents Canal Co took over the canal owned by George Duckett, which created a link with the river Lee and areas around Tottenham and Edmonton. [2]

1900 The name was changed to the present title. [3]
