Wood Street ward covers the eastern half of Walthamstow village and then runs all the way to the border between Walthamstow and Redbridge, stretching out to Epping Forest. Wood Street itself runs through the middle of the ward, which has the station and the indoor market at its centre. Schools include Our Lady & St George, Henry Maynard, Holy Family, St Mary’s RC and Woodside.
Wood Street Market
Wood Street Indoor Market in East London is a unique historical market, and is only a 15 minute walk from the centre of the Walthamstow Village in E17 or a 2 minute walk from Wood Street overground Station.
This is the place to find cheap second hand furniture, antiques, an amazing collection of retro & vintage music, vinyl and shellacs. There is also picture framing, cake decoration and various other Arts and Craft shops. In all there are about 50 units to walk around, and a great little café that does a good old fashioned fry up!
The market has recently begun to find interest from artists and makers who are seeing the potential in the niche retail spaces and in the community of collectors and antique dealers.
