In 1213 King John visited Shern Hall, the manor house in Hoe Street that survived until it was demolished in1896. Until the 19th century Walthamstow
Walthamstow
was largely rural, with a small village centre (now Walthamstow
Walthamstow
Village) and a number of large estates. The main route through the district was Hoe Street. There were various smaller lanes crossing the town. The road now known as Forest Road was originally called Clay Street. Further south, the High Street was named Marsh Street, and led from the original settlement out to the marshes. Shernhall Street is an ancient route, as is Wood Street, to the east.[4] In the 1660s Sir William Batten, Surveyor of the Navy, and his wife Elizabeth Woodcocke had a house in Wood Street where, according to Samuel Pepys, they lived "like princes" and cultivated a vineyard. The Vestry House, now the Vestry House Museum, was used as the first town hall. By 1870 the place had grown to the size of a small suburb and a new town hall was built in Orford Road from which affairs of the village were run. Urban development[edit] With the advent of the railways and the ensuing suburbanisation in the late 19th century, Walthamstow
Walthamstow
experienced a large growth in population and speculative building.[5]

The Lighthouse Methodist Church which dates from 1893 which is situated on Markhouse Road, on the corner of Downsfield Road. There is a lantern at the top of the tower, which also contains a spiral staircase. The church was erected because of the generosity of Captain David King of the shipbuilding firm of Bullard King & Co which also ran the Natal Direct Shipping Line, which ran ships direct from London
London
to Durban
Durban
without stopping at the Cape. The LGOC X-type and B-type buses were built at Blackhorse Lane from October 1908 onwards. The B-type is considered one of the first mass-production buses. The manufacturing operation later became AEC, famous as the manufacturer of many of London's buses. On 13 June 1909, A. V. Roe's aircraft took to the air from Walthamstow
Walthamstow
Marshes. It was the first all-British aircraft and was given the ominous nickname of the "Yellow Terror" but officially carried the name Avro1. Roe later founded the Avro
Avro
aircraft company, which later built the acclaimed Avro
Avro
Lancaster. Local government[edit] From 1894 Walthamstow
Walthamstow
was an urban district and from 1929 a municipal borough in Essex. In 1931 the population of the borough, covering an area of 4,342 acres (17.57 km2), peaked at 132,972.[6] In 1965 the borough was abolished and its former area merged with that of the Municipal Borough of Chingford
Municipal Borough of Chingford
and the Municipal Borough of Leyton
Municipal Borough of Leyton
to form the London Borough of Waltham Forest
London Borough of Waltham Forest
in Greater London.[6] Other places in east London
London
formerly of the county of Essex, such as Ilford and Romford
Romford
were placed into London
London
Boroughs along with Walthamstow. None of the postal district names or codes was changed at this time (e.g. Ilford
Ilford
remained Ilford, Essex, and Walthamstow
Walthamstow
remained London E17). Recent history[edit] Since the 2012 Summer Olympics, the town has become increasingly popular mostly as a result of gentrification. Local property prices have increased at a high rate of 22.3% from 2013-2014, compared to London's average of 17.8%.[7] It has turned Walthamstow
Walthamstow
into a 'trendy' town similar to Shoreditch. The leafy Walthamstow Village
Walthamstow Village
in particular has become sought-after by buyers.[8] On 29 May 2015, a regular local unicyclist was hit and dragged under by a double decker route 212 bus in Hoe Street. Locals numbering up to 100 people helped to pull the bus off the unicyclist.[9][10] The MP for Walthamstow, Stella Creasy, later said she was "proud" of the community for saving the unicyclist's life.[11] Governance[edit] Walthamstow

and its neighbouring towns forming part of an ancient route from London

Walthamstow
Central is the main town centre and includes Selborne Road and the High Street. Walthamstow Village
Walthamstow Village
conservation area is a peaceful and attractive district to the east of what has become the commercial centre of Walthamstow. The area is roughly defined as being south of Church Hill, west of Shernhall Street, north of Grove Road and east of Hoe Street. Orford Road is the main route through the district, though even this is a quiet thoroughfare by the standards of London. The village has a small selection of specialist shops, pubs and restaurants, and house prices tend to be higher in the streets of this neighbourhood. It was voted best urban village in London
London
by Time Out magazine in 2004. Upper Walthamstow
Upper Walthamstow
is to the east of Walthamstow
Walthamstow
Village. The area's main thoroughfare is Wood Street, which has a good selection of shops and local businesses, and is served by railway, with a railway station on the Liverpool Street to Chingford
Chingford
line. Wood Street is home to Wood Street Indoor Market.[12] The market was the site of a cinema from 1912 to 1955, operated by the Penny Picture Theatre Co. It re-opened under new independent management in 1953 as the Rio Cinema, but this was short lived and it closed in 1955.[13] Now the market is filled with quirky market traders, and was documented in a short documentary made by Mark Windows.[14] Walthamstow
Walthamstow
has a wide variety of housing stock, but the vast majority of residential property was built in the early 20th century. From Coppermill Lane in the west (next to the marshes), to Wood Street in the east, there are scores of terraced streets dating to the Edwardian era and the 1920s. The area along Markhouse Road and St James Street has many examples of Warner properties. These were developed as affordable housing for the working classes in the early part of the 20th century. Bombing raids in the Second World War
Second World War
and urban redevelopment projects in the 1960s and 1970s have left areas with more modern housing, mostly in the shape of low-rise concrete blocks. The northern continuation of Markhouse Road is St James's Street to which Blackhorse Road follows, served by underground and railway stations, which in turn becomes Blackhorse Lane. This is bound on its western side by industrial units and warehouses. The London
London
Borough of Waltham Forest has proposed developing the area around Blackhorse Road railway station to become a gateway to the town. Highams Park
Highams Park
and Hale End, though both in the E4 postcode, are historically part of Walthamstow. Although bounded by the marshes to the west and parts of Epping Forest
Epping Forest
to the east, there is little open space in the actual town. There used to be two commons in the town, Church Common, adjacent to St. Mary's Church in Walthamstow
Walthamstow
Village and Markhouse Common, located off Markhouse Lane (now Markhouse Road) and what is now the western end of Queens Road. Both open spaces were lost in the 19th century, when the land was sold to property developers. Lloyd Park has been open to the public since 1900 and is located on Forest Road behind the William Morris
William Morris
Gallery. It has a formal garden with a pond, and the adjacent Aveling Field has facilities for bowling, tennis, basketball, an outdoor gym, a skate park and a children's play area.[15] Demography[edit] Walthamstow's large size and seven wards makes it difficult to obtain demographics about the town as a whole. The wards that cover Walthamstow
Walthamstow
are: Chapel End (northeastern part), Higham Hill (northwestern part), High Street (western), Hoe Street (inner-eastern and Walthamstow
Walthamstow
Village), Markhouse (southwestern), William Morris (northern), and Wood Street (eastern and Upper Walthamstow). As of the 2011 census, White British is the largest ethnicity in all wards. Other White is the second largest in all wards except Markhouse. The other double-digit ethnicities are Pakistani and Black African. The highest White British ward is Chapel End (35%),[16] whereas the lowest is Markhouse (24%).[17] Other White is largest in High Street (18%) and lowest in Wood Street (14%). Pakistani is highest in Markhouse (18%) and lowest in both Chapel End and Higham Hill (9%).[18] Black African is largest in Higham Hill
Higham Hill
(10%).[18] Economy[edit]

High Street

The High Street is dominated by Walthamstow
Walthamstow
Market, which began in 1885, and occupies all but the last 100 yards of the street. It is reputed to be a mile long[citation needed], but in fact measures approximately ⅔ of a mile. It is the longest street market in Europe. The market is open five days a week (not Sunday or Monday), and there is a Sunday farmers' market. The street is lined with shops: a selection of high street chains, but also many independent small shops specialising in food, fabrics, and household goods, as well as cafés. The overall tone is downmarket and unique. There are two patches of new-ish development: at Sainsbury's, and the Mall Selborne Walk covered shopping centre[19] both of which have large multi-storey car parks. Shopmobility Waltham Forest operates in the Mall, loaning mobility scooters and wheelchairs, with volunteer helpers, to disabled and older people. The historic central library on the High Street was one of many built with money donated by the Scottish-American businessman and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie, whose portrait bust can be seen on the exterior of the building. It was modernised and expanded in 2006–07, although there were claims that this was at the expense of book holdings. According to the Waltham Forest Guardian, "almost a quarter of a million books have gone missing from Waltham Forest libraries amid claims they have been burned or pulped", and the borough's library stock fell by 60% over the two previous years.[20] At the same time, a large plot at the corner of High Street and Hoe Street was set for substantial redevelopment as a retail space. This site was previously the location of the town's central post office and a shopping arcade built in the 1960s. Plans for the redevelopment of this site initially fell through in 2005, but work on a new cinema, flats and restaurants started in April 2013 and was completed in December 2014.[21] Transport[edit]
