Nearest Tube: Woodford
This district of east London is so named because the area was originally heavily wooded and was where a Saxon road crossed the river Roding.
The district remained sparsely populated until the 16th century when it stated to attract some of London's wealthier residents. As a result several large residential houses were built in the district and it remained an exclusive residential area for several hundred years.
Then in 1856 the railway reached the district and it was quickly transformed into a residential suburb. But unlike many of east London's districts Woodford retained several areas of greenery which give it a more open and pleasant aspect than many parts of east London.
