Description: The Cutler Street warehouses, near the boundary of the City of London, were once used by the East India Company. They were built in the late 18th century and used for storing the Company's goods, mainly tea, until it ceased to operate as a trading company. The warehouses were later purchased by the St. Katharine's Dock Company and then by the Port of London Authority. These buildings covered 2 hectares (5 acres) and at one point employed over 400 clerks and 4000 warehousemen.
