Buildings historian Karen Averby from Archangel Heritage will talk to Chingford Historical Society about Victorian and Edwardian homes in Chingford.
The arrival of the railway in 1873 heralded changes in Chingford’s landscape as this rural area was slowly transformed with suburban streets. From the earlier terraces near to Highams Park and Chingford stations, to the Chingford Rise estate and grander detached homes with forest views, Karen looks at both the architectural styles and the residents of the new homes built in this period.
Karen is a buildings historian and research consultant living in Walthamstow. She researches the architectural and social histories of all types of buildings throughout England and Wales – house histories are a specialism.
