Docklands Teleport - Satellite Earth Station



The former British Telecom satellite earth station, with several large satellite uplink dishes in London Docklands was sold in March 2007 to become:

Docklands Teleport
Arqiva Satellite Media Solutions
Pier Road
North Woolwich
London E16 2JJ

The Nearest Tube station is "King George V" on Docklands Light railway (DLR).

Latitude: (WGS84) N51:29:59 ( 51.499709 )
Longitide: (WGS84) E0:03:47 ( 0.063067 )

The pop group Hard-Fi used this location for their 2007 music video Suburban Knights directed by Ben Crook, which has the band apparently breaking in to the satellite groundstation and "hacking" in to the system to broadcast their performance around the world, obviously unhampered by any security measures.
