This is one of a series of End of the Line walks organised by Footprints of London.
Walthamstow joined the tube network in 1968 but has been well connected to Central London from the early 1700s; originally with stagecoach services and later with the railway arriving in 1870. Before the railways arrived the rich flocked to this area building grand houses and tombs as in the image below.
On this walk we will visit Church End, one of the original settlements that made up the town, walk down a road formerly known as Church Common Lane and see an early 19thC house now a social club.
We will also visit the site of a long forgotten railway station, walk the Street of Blue Plaques and see a house where a famous botanist once lived.
This circular walk will start outside Costa Coffee on the London side of the Overground close to the Travelodge.
