Seen on Broadway Local History Walk

On Thursday 7th June we had our first local history walk around Stratford town centre. This was part of the London Festival of Architecture, a great celebration of places exploring the theme of ‘identity’ this year.

From Stratford railway and the lost Angel Lane, Broadway’s rich emporia, pubs and cultural venues to industries down the High Street, we discussed some of Stratford town centre’s past land uses, landmarks and also current projects and developments. 

We would like to thank everyone who joined us on the day and the LFA for hosting us this year. We are looking into making this walk acessible to locals, so stay tuned for our open invites to join us, or email us if you are interested in participating in a future event or you want to have a walk as a team activity for your business. Enjoy the highlights of the day! Photographs by Frank Da Silva ‘Archival Images courtesy of Newham Archives and Local Studies Library’
