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. 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.
