Waltham Forest is a borough in north-east London covering about 15 square miles that is bordered by Epping Forest in the north, Redbridge to the east, Newham and Hackney to the south and Haringey and Enfield to the west.
It was formed in 1965 following the merger of the individual boroughs of Walthamstow, Leyton and Chingford. The other major centre of population in Waltham Forest is Leytonstone.
However, the area was first settled in Roman times. A Roman road probably ran north from London on the line of Leytonstone High Road where fragments of fire cracked flint have been recovered during archaeological digs.
Today, the postcodes covered by Waltham Forest are: E4, E5, E6, E7, E10, E11, E15, E17, E18, E20 IG8 and N17.
The borough’s total population is 265,800 but it is one of the most ethnically diverse areas of the city.
It is also split by the North Circular Road. North of the divide is characterised by more affluent developments plus reservoirs and open space. Waltham Forest has more green space than any London borough north of the Thames, including Lloyd Park that is home to the William Morris Gallery.
In the south of the borough, the landscape is dominated by all the hallmarks of inner-city London, including high rise apartment blocks and other forms of urban development.
