Docklands Light Railway Bank route at Limehouse

Looking east from Limehouse station, along the former London and Blackwall Railway viaduct towards Westferry station. The octagonal tower in the distance is the Limehouse Basin Accumulator Tower, used to pump water in the dock connecting the Regents Canal to Limehouse basin; behind that is St Annes, Limehouse, a church built by Nicholas Hawksmoor, a pupil of Sir Christopher Wren. The viaduct at this point forms the southern side of a delta junction formation; the western side is in use by main line trains on the London Tilbury and Southend line, and the eastern side, just visible in the left of this picture, is disused
