Much of the housing dates from the early 20th century when terraces were built to house workers in the docks and in dock-based industries. Bomb damage from the Second World War left spaces which have been filled by blocks of flats, most of them low-rise.
Approximately half the housing stock is owner-occupied, and there is a large private rented sector as well as local authority and housing association provision.
The population, of approximately 32,000, is ethnically very diverse; over 75% of the London Borough of Newham’s residents in 2011 were from non-white ethnic groups, with substantial Asian and African communities, and there is a growing Eastern European population.
The Parish Patron is Brasenose College, Oxford.
