E7 Forest Gate
Stations - Forest Gate (BR Liverpool Street), Wanstead Park and Woodgrange Park (BR Barking line). Upton Park (District) is just outside the area.
Forest Gate forms an almost entirely residential district between Stratford and Manor Park, extending along the line of the Romford Road. Once it was so rural that the first railway station in the area was soon closed through lack of custom, but those days can now only be imagined at its northern boundary where its is bordered by the parklands of Wanstead Flats. The area was largely built up in the second half of the nineteenth century and the pubs reflect that period.
Much of the Taylor Walker influence in this and adjoining districts derives from Holt's, who operated the Marine Brewery in Ratcliff Road from 1837 until it was taken over by the Cannon Brewery in 1912, with 27 pubs. Cannon were themselves acquired by Taylor Walker in 1930.
