Bluegate Fields


Bluegate Fields

Bluegate Fields (also known as Blue Gate Fields) was one of the worst slum areas that once existed just north of the old, East London docks during the Victorian era. Two streets in the area had actually been named Bluegate Fields at different times – present-day Dellow St. (along the eastern edge of the St. George’s-in-the-East church yard) is one of them – Cable Street (along the northern edge of the church yard) is the other.
