Wapping railway station is on the northern bank of the river Thames in Wapping, East London, England. It is in Zone 2, and on the East London Line of London Overground between Shadwell and Rotherhithe.[note 1]

After recent temporary closures for remodelling, the station reopened for preview services on 27 April 2010 for services to New Cross and New Cross Gate, and from 23 May 2010 trains to/from New Cross Gate were extended to West Croydon / Crystal Palace.[4]

History[edit]

A 1908 Railway Clearing House map of lines in South East London, including the southern portion of the East London Line

The station occupies the north end of the former Thames foot tunnel built by Marc Isambard Brunel between 1825–1843, and subsequently adapted for railway traffic. Access to the station is by lift or a flight of stairs built into one of the original access shafts of the Thames Tunnel.[note 2]

Locomotive exiting the Thames Tunnel and arriving at what is now Wapping station. Illustrated London News 8 January 1870.

The station was originally opened as the northern terminus of the East London Railway[note 3] on 7 December 1869 as Wapping and Shadwell, and the station was renamed Wapping on 10 April 1876,[note 4] when the line was extended northwards to Liverpool Street,[note 3] via a new station at Shadwell. The earliest trains were provided by the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway, whose system connected with the line at New Cross Gate.[5][note 3] Underground trains of the Metropolitan and the District Railways first served the station on 1 October 1884,[note 5] but the station was last served by District trains on 31 July 1905.[note 5][note 6]

The station was extensively remodelled between 1995 and 1998, when the entire East London Line - including Wapping station - was closed due to repair work on the tunnels under the Thames. Vitreous enamel panels by Nick Hardcastle[6][7] showing the station and the area in former and modern times were installed on the platforms.

London Overground[edit]

The East London Line closed on 22 December 2007, and reopened on 27 April 2010 when it became part of the new London Overground system. During this time the station was heavily refurbished.

The proposed extension of the East London Line raised concerns that the station would have to be closed due to its platforms being too short (only 4 cars long) to accommodate the new rolling stock planned for the extended line (which could be 6 or 8 cars long). However, on 16 August 2004 then-Mayor of London Ken Livingstone announced that the station would remain open.[8]
