London/Summer 2008 Mapping Party Marathon/2008-07-30
This is a past event
This was the 13th Mapping Party in the Summer 2008 London Mapping Marathon series in Docklands, East London.
When : Wednesday 30th July - Evening.
Getting to Canning Town
Various transport options. Check the tube map
Canning Town Station is on the Jubilee line and DLR
But if you're on the DLR, take your pick of any station which is passing through the cake diagram. On the Beckton branch you could get off at Royal Victoria (very close to the pub), Custom House, Princes Regent, Royal Albert or Gallions Reach. The King George V branch is not as helpful for access to the cake, but you could get off at West Silvertown, Pontoon Dock, London City Airport, of King George V.
Older tube maps show that you can also approach the area via the overground railway, but this now doesn't extend South beyond Stratford.
We are going to a bar/restaurant called Caribbean Scene on the corner of the dock front (map). It has tables and chairs outside, and next to it is a floating marketing suite.
It's 15-20 minutes walking distance from Canning Town station, or, just take the DLR 1 stop from Canning Town (towards Prince Regent and Beckton) to Royal Victoria on the DLR, which is less than a 5 minute walk from the bar.
1. Probably makes sense for me to do this section because it's the one I'm already mapping (on foot), and I've got a fairly good idea what still needs doing - SchematicMapper
2. SchematicMapper if I finish the first section
