All Saints is a Docklands Light Railway (DLR) station in Poplar in Greater London, England. The station is situated in the East End of London and is named after nearby All Saints, a church dating from 1821-3. The station entrance is on the East India Dock Road, opposite Chrisp Street Market, and adjacent to the Poplar Baths.

On-train announcements for trains approaching the station describe it as "All Saints for Chrisp Street Market".

History[edit]

The platforms with sidings behind

There was a previous station on the same site, called Poplar station, which was served by the North London Railway. The location of this station can be seen in the bottom-right hand corner of the Map of Poplar, 1885.

Serco announced that from 24 August 2009, the frequency on the Stratford to Lewisham branch would be reduced at peak times to one train every seven minutes, from the current five-minute frequency. This was to accommodate a flyover that increased frequencies by 30 seconds on the Bank to Lewisham line.[4]
