Dickens’s Dictionary of the Thames, From its Source to the Nore – Charles Dickens, 1885:

Trinity Buoy Wharf

At this establishment is constructed the whole of the lighting and buoying apparatus of the United Kingdom, and of the other parts of the Empire dependent on the Trinity Board.

[It is said that Trinity Buoy Wharf is the site of London’s only lighthouse but if you glance up as you walk past the Habib Bank building at 42 Moorgate you will see that this is plainly untrue. R.D.]
