Walbrook Wharf

Walbrook Wharf is an operating freight wharf located in the City of London adjacent to Cannon Street station. It has safeguarded wharf status.

It is used as a waste transfer station owned by the City of London Corporation and operated by Cory Environmental. Refuse from central London is transferred onto barges for transport to eventual landfill at the Mucking Marshes Landfill in Essex.

Walbrook Wharf was formerly arranged as a dock, but modern containerised loading has resulted in the infilling of the dock. The wharf is the point where the ancient stream, the Walbrook fed into the Thames, a location also known as Dowgate.

The riverside walk runs along Walbrook Wharf and is only closed to pedestrians at this point when waste is being transferred onto barges.
