Join local historian for a wander around Snaresbrook

P1060109---CopyThe Great Eastern Railway brackets at Snaresbrook Station

Local historian Lynn Haseldine Jones will lead a walk around Snaresbrook this month looking at the evidence for commuters.

“We begin at Snaresbrook Station, where the railway first came in 1856, changing the nature of the village from a predominantly Georgian settlement to a bustling Victorian suburb. There is still evidence of the Great Eastern Railway, hardly noticed by passengers on the busy Central Line,” said Lynn.

The free 90-minute walk departs at 2pm on 9 October (booking required).
