The area known as Fish Island was previously known as Old Ford, and until the 1800s was a marshy area alongside the banks of the River Lea. Canals were later cut across the marsh in the late 18th century and early 19th century. Railways followed shortly afterwards and industry began to establish in the mid-1800s.
Crown Wharf on the River Lea below Old Ford Lock is the oldest industrial site in Fish Island. From c.1853, it was occupied by a wallpaper works and then Paper Staining in the 1860’s. Fredrick Layton Contractor occupied the site in 1873 and a Construction Ironwork Company owned it in 1889 hence the Iron Foundry from 1893.
