Event description

Description

Essex Road is a street littered with wonderful historical gems, interesting buildings and intriguing stories.

On this gentle linear walk you'll be led the full length of the road, from Islington Green up to its junction with Balls Pond Road (just over one mile).

Along the way we will stop to look at historical sites, both existing and demolished, and marvel at how this road has changed so much over the centuries.

You'll hear about an innovative market, a early care home and amazing Tudor taverns. You'll see a fabulous example of social housing, a swimming pool, a cloned church and an Egyptian Temple.

It's a mixed bag... but then so is Islington itself. And that's why I love it.

.......................................

I am originally an Essex girl so it's quite fitting I should lead you along a road that points to Essex. If you look at map and continue the line of the road you'll see that as the crow flies it "continues" through Woodford on the edge of Epping Forest, to Ongar and then on through Chelmsford and Colchester before finishing at Harwich, an important port with 17th century dockyards.
