Barking is an area of East London where fishing is largely a hobby or past time however for 500 years from 14th – 19th centuries, fishing was the main industry of the area. Fishermen set out from the Barking pool and went as far out as Iceland in their little cod boats. The fish were captured and kept in a pierced well on the boat where they were then transferred to a boat with a submerged cage and rowed up the Thames to Billingsgate fish market. This was a thriving industry up until 1850 when the Thames was so badly polluted that all the transported fish would die on their way to the market.
The arrival of the train service at the same time put an end to the industry once and for all however there are still plenty of references remaining such as street names and pub names. It is hard to imagine that such an urban area was once a fishing village however the evidence is still available to see at Valence House museum in nearby Dagenham. Other exhibitions on the history of life in Barking take place all year round in the half moated building and the surrounding 28 acres of parkland is a wonderful place for a stroll with your chosen escort in barking.
Barking has been a somewhat forgotten area of east London for many years however with the theme of regeneration sweeping through the city and the demand by an expanding population, the Barking riverside development will create a variety of living, working, leisure and cultural amenities for the local residents. Our very own Barking escorts reflect the diversity of this area with ladies from all types of backgrounds available to locals and visitors alike. The shift in financial investment in the area has introduced a whole new demographic to the area and one that demands high quality companions such as our own Barking escorts.
Barking has few visitor attractions as it is a mainly residential suburban area however Eastbury Manor House is a wonderful example of an Elizabethan gentry house in Eastbury square, Barking. The existing timber roof dates to 1566 and local legend has it that the famous Gunpowder plot was first conceived here. The National trust oversee this property and plan various events throughout the year making it a lovely place to visit, perhaps with one of our Barking escorts as your companion.
The diverse cultural status of the area means that dining out can be an exotic experience. The choice of Asian and Indian restaurants is extensive and since most restaurants offer a delivery service, you and your date can enjoy an Indian together, perhaps in the comfort of your own home or a local hotel.
