West Handyside Canopy

This is a canopy roof constructed in 1888 to provide a covered area for unloading of fish and other perishable goods. The goods were unloaded from the railway carriages for distribution around London. Fish was sold here on Sundays when Billingsgate in the City of London was shut. Railway traffic ceased during the 1970s but the area continued to be used for deliveries and parking. 

The canopy has been restored and will be used as an events space and to host weekly and seasonal markets. To date the space has hosted the street food market KERB, a pop up roller rink Skate King’s Cross and the Wine Car Boot.
