Block Management Maryland
As a specialist Block Management Company we are operating in Maryland.
History of Maryland
Maryland is in Newham, east London, and is situated 7.6 miles from the centre of London. There is a confusion arising from the origins of the area's name. One theory suggests that it is derived from Old English words for a boundary, akin to the Anglo-Saxon words maere and mearc. Another theory is that Maryland's name comes from a rich local merchant, Richard Lee, (1617-1664), who bought land and built in the area, having returned from the American colony of Maryland. He was the great-great-grandfather of Confederate Robert E. Lee, (1807-1870), a confederate general, during the American civil war.
During the Medieval era, Maryland was rural, with only a few houses. However, a major change occurred in 1874, when Maryland Point railway was opened, on the Great Eastern Railway. In 1940, this was renamed Maryland.
In recent years, private apartment blocks have been built near the station. However, despite the advent of the local Crossrail station and gentrification in the area, Maryland has significant levels of social need, with many people in a disadvantaged situation.

What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Maryland
I had a great walk, starting at Channelsea, and finishing at Hackney Wick. It took a long time. However, I was pleased I had walked a total 10 miles, for most of the day. I saw some great sights on the way, including canals and rivers.
Things to do in Maryland
Channelsea is a walk that can be made, from Abbey Road, Docklands Light Railway station, to Hackney Wick, London Overground station. If you're a keen walker this is ideal. The total distance is 10 miles, and time taken is 7 hours, at the most. The walk has four sections: (1) Along Channelsea to the River Lee at Three Mills Island (0.5 miles), (2) By Bow Creek to the Thames (2 miles), (3) Round the Isle of Dogs to Limehouse Basin (4.5 miles), (4) Up Regents Canal to Victoria Park, and on to Hackney Wick (3 miles).
