Limehouse Basin
The departure point for the Regent's canal and the Lee (sometimes Lea) Navigation (via the Limehouse Cut) and The Stort Navigation

The London canals pass through all types of area (although sometimes which is which is unknown in the private space of the canal walker), if security is a concern I recommend a simple expedient, start early. "Low lives" are rarely in evidence much before evening.
