At the end of the line
Monday 22nd May 2023
Walthamstow joined the tube network with the arrival of the Victoria Line in 1968 but has been well connected to London from the early 1700s. Even before the railways arrived, the rich flocked to this area building grand houses and spectacular tombs. We will visit one of the original settlements that made up the town and see an early 19th century house that was home to a lady who bequeathed vast sums of money to charities. We will pass old alms-houses still occupied today and the 18th century former workhouse now home to the borough's local museum.
Our walk leader is Joanna Moncrieff. She is an independent tour guide.
