Marsh Street was the original name of Walthamstow High Street. This photo shows what is now the Hoe Street end of the street which was the site of several large manor houses, used as weekend or summer retreats by wealthy merchants from the City. Samuel Pepys’ bosses from the the Admiralty had houses here, and after visiting one of them Pepys described how they had drunk wine from a local vineyard and “the whole company said they never drank better foreign wine [than this one] in their lives”.

Walthamstow is full of passionate people with strong views. OK some loathe the place but most people love it.

I would hate to live somewhere where people feel nothing much about where they live, and could easily swap it for somewhere else tomorrow.

Walthamstow is definitely not beige.

Many people I have met describe it as the friendliest place they’ve lived in London, and this for a place where the vast majority of its residents come from elsewhere. It is a place with its roots still firmly in east London soil, whose born and bred are known for their warmth and humour.

It is a place well worth getting to know. The E List is about spreading the word not only of what is happening in Walthamstow right now, but also tales of what has gone before and what people dream of next.
