Where is Old Ford? The onward march of history has tried to remove Old Ford – its ford has gone, its railway station has gone, and it was swallowed by the parish of St Mary Bow.
But still it survives, and has tales to tell.
Don’t be deceived by this area’s seeming quietness – it hides tales of war and peace, of industry and leisure.
Old Ford was here before the Romans arrived, but it was Roman industry and commerce that put it ‘on the map’.
Since then, the area has embraced manufacture and distribution, as well as social provision past and present.
This is a free tour, but please reserve your place here to make sure!
