There’s so much more to Walthamstow than just its famous mile-long Market. The grand tombs in St Mary’s Churchyard offer clues to the area’s history, which is not what you might think. Starting at the award-winning William Morris Gallery, on this walk we will hear about the plagiarist who brought us Sweeney Todd and an interior designer nicknamed “Come and Seduce Me”, see a remnant of a post office designed by Robert Smirke and a theatre hidden within a school, visit the real and original Walthamstow Village with its Ancient House and finish at an industrial estate home to the jaw dropping God’s Own Junkyard, the Wild Card Brewery and the Mother’s Ruin Gin Palace.
