Rainham is a suburban town in northeast London, England, and part of the London Borough of Havering.[2] Located 13.6 miles (21.9 km) east of Charing Cross, it is one of the locally important district centres identified in the London Plan[2] and is surrounded by a residential area, which has grown from the historic village, to the north and a commercial area, fronting the River Thames, to the south. As part of the suburban growth of London in the 20th century, Rainham significantly expanded and increased in population, becoming part of Hornchurch Urban District in 1934, and has formed part of Greater London since 1965. The economic history of Rainham is underpinned by a shift from agriculture to industry and manufacture[3] and is now in a period of regeneration, coming within the London Riverside section of the London Thames Gateway Development Corporation area of responsibility.[4]
