Barking - London Borough
Barking - Barking - A13 - A406 - A1020
The constituent parts were the greater part of the Municipal Borough of Barking and the entire Municipal Borough of Dagenham, the former area of which was transferred to Greater London from Essex. At the time of the amalgamation the combined population of Barking and Dagenham was around 180,000, the northern tip of Dagenham having been incorporated into Redbridge and a small area of Barking in Newham. The borough was renamed Barking and Dagenham in 1980.
The Museums and Heritage displays of Barking and Dagenham is quite well developed. Thousands of residents and visitors each year patronise the two main historic buildings of the borough - Eastbury Manor House and Valence House Museum.
Valence House is particularly proud to have attracted Heritage Lottery Funding recently in preparation for a major development which will make the Museum, Local Studies Library and Archives even more enjoyable to visit for local people and those from farther afield.
