Green Dragon

Status: Closed and demolished
Address: 4 Shadwell Dock Street, E1
London borough: Tower Hamlets
Historical parish: Shadwell
Dates open: by 1791-at least 1851
Notes: I believe this street ran between New Gravel Lane (now Garnet Street) and the end of Lower Shadwell (which no longer exists, but would have been approximately where the modern Glamis Road crosses the entrance to the Shadwell Basin); it ran along the north side of the Shadwell Old Basin, and both the street and the pub would have been demolished for the construction of the Shadwell New Basin in the 1850s. There was another "Green Dragon" nearby, on Green Dragon Alley just near the end of Wapping High Street.
