From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Silvertown is a district of the London Borough of Newham, in East London, England. It forms part of the Port of London. It lies on the north bank of the River Thames. A major £3.5billion redevelopment of the area was approved in 2015.[1] It was named after Samuel Winkworth Silver's former rubber factory which opened in 1852. The area is now dominated by the Tate & Lyle sugar refinery and the John Knight ABP animal rendering plant.
