Local news for Wapping E1W and Tower Hamlets

Love Wapping is now closed

It is with great regret that our entire editorial team has to announce that Love Wapping is now closed.

The reasons for closing can be found here. Many thanks for your messages of support but we are done.


Bottom line is that this site, like its illustrious forerunner What’s in Wapping and most other hyperlocal sites across the UK, is unfunded.

Until our dedicated research team can work out how to provide local news to local people without becoming poor in the process it will remain closed.

Below is a content index of every post LW has published over the last few years for reference purposes.

Our finest hour?

But before we go let’s all enjoy once more what we consider to be Love Wapping’s finest hour. After all, it would be rude not to.

You can read the original post ‘Rabina Khan’s election leaflets delivered inside THH newsletter here.

Which come to think of it must have been in some way linked to this story ‘How Tower Hamlets First grabbed tenants phone numbers for electioneering‘.

Nah. We must have been making it all up.
