Trivia

Stratford is a town and district of East London in the London Borough of Newham.

To the west Stratford borders Hackney Wick (in the London Borough of Hackney) and Bow (in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets).

To the north is Leyton (in London Borough of Waltham Forest), and there is Forest Gate to the East (within Newham). Plaistow is to the south and West Ham southeast.

The River Lea & the canals mark the western limits.

The name Stratford is first recorded in 1067 as Strætforda and means “ford on a Roman road”. It is from Old English “stræt” and “ford.”

Stratford folk were an agricultural bunch, whose relative nearness to London provided a neat market to sell its wares. The area around Stratford became known for its potato production and midway into the 18th century Stratford became the preferred place especially for the wealthy city financiers and rich merchants.

By the 19th century, Stratford was also a central transport center, with the Walter Hancock’s steam coaches and omnibuses running into London every 15 minutes.

The Royal Mail gave the postcode E20 to the Olympic Park and East Village; this postcode was being used in the EastEnders soap for the suburb of Walford.

Stratford has two shopping centres; Westfield Stratford City and The Stratford Centre which are on either side of Stratford station. Westfield City is one of the largest shopping centres of Europe. The Stratford Centre has a range of inexpensive shops; it also has indoor and outdoor market stalls. Surrounding the centre is the 1960’s built one-way gyratory system.

Stratford, today, is served very well by bus routes and railway stations.

The main thoroughfare is the Broadway, dominated by St Johns parish church, built by Edward Blore between 1832 and 1834. It is a grade II listed building that has a large spire. It was, firstly, built as a chapel of ease to save worshippers traveling to the ancient parish church of All Saint’s West Ham.

The churchyard of St John’s has a memorial to the 1556 Stratford Martyrs, who burned at the stake during Queen Mary’s reign. Unveiled in 1878, it has an octagonal base with a spire with twelve sides that have terracotta plaques on each face.

Just outside the churchyard stands a tall granite obelisk, over 12m tall, that was placed in 1861 as a memorial to Samual Gurney, a philanthropist and abolitionist. There are drinking fountains on either side.

Theatre Royal Stratford East (“Stratford East” is not a location the “East” is used so as not to be confused with Straford-upon-Avon).

The University of East London or UEL has a major campus in Stratford.

A new university is being planned on the Olympic Park.
