Memories of Leytonstone

Leytonstone Community Garden Launch, Sunday 9th September 2012

Photographs by Asya Gefter

Text by Diana Korchien

With the launch of Church Lane Community Garden on September 9th, Transition Leytonstone have celebrated another important milestone in their efforts to increase the amount of food grown, sold, and consumed locally in the Leytonstone area. The community garden is a new local food growing project initiated by Transition Leytonstone and now supported by The London 2012 Changing Places Programme Transform, delivered by Groundwork London and the London Sustainability Exchange.

Waltham Forest Council, who have granted Transition Leytonstone a 10-year lease on the land, handed over the keys to the 250m2 site earlier this summer. After years of neglect, the area is now being prepared for cultivation. Photographer Asya Gefter has been tracking the site’s development.

    • julie stephenson says:

      love the collection of photographs, are you planning on exhibiting during the arts trail?
      thanks for taking the time, i had many from the open studios before the link road, lost as i have moved so many times unfortunatly

      • Glad you like the collection, the prints are due to arrive later this week, very exciting! I am hoping to line up an exhibition during the arts trail, Ill let people know once I’ve got it sorted!

      • Glad you like the collection, can’t wait to see the prints later this week! I hope t have something lined up for the arts trail, I’m just waiting for confirmation from a venue – I’ll let people know once it’s arranged!

    OH.MY.GOSH
    Alan Simpson, more pictures please! I don’t remember that far past the station but it was so beautiful. The A12 took some of the most beautiful houses out of Leytonstone. Do you have any photos of the old station entrance and the big tree (that I used to climb on)? More more more please!

    • Alan Simpson says:

      I only wish I’d taken more over the years, but I took only a handful of photos of pre-A12 Leytonstone, and none of the tree by the tube station entrance, I’m afraid. I remember one wet day following a trail of cow pats from Lytton Road to the station and finding several cows sheltering under that tree. That was only in the 1990s, but it’s hard to believe now!

      Alan

      • Anita McCullough says:

        Dear Alan, I have really enjoyed your photos especially the one showing the under-road bridge and the route from Dyer’s Hall Road to the Tube station. I too was fond of the cotoneaster tree by the Tube station entrance and was sad to see it go. It fired my subsequent interest in gardening: my first plot was where they are now building in the aforementioned road. I lived at No12, next door to Grayson Perry. As an aside, as I know your archive is extensive, I don’t suppose you know where I could find any pics of the old St John’s vicarage c 1874?? (for a separate writing project) Best wishes, Anita

      • Hi Anita, I am not sure if Alan gets this directly when you contact on here so I will forward the email on to him, just in case as I am sure he will appreciate your comments. We haven’t got many old photographs on here as yet. You could try Vestry House Museum who have an archive of old photographs covering Waltham Forest. Sadly due to copyright I cannot get permission to have digital versions of their collection on here. If anyone has any older pictures of Leytonstone they would be much appreciated. I can scan negatives or prints.

  7. Stuart says:

    My two favourites:
    John Rogers’ photo of blurred traffic on road. It’s an intriguing image that at first sight is puzzling.

    Karen Pamplin’s photo of the two tower blocks in the snow. The colourful figures on white landscape is very effective.

  8. Jean Hart says:

    I received your website from my son, Stuart as I now live in Vanouver, Canada. The photographs are great and I really enjoyed scanning through them. I remember some of the sites in Leytonstone from my visits there, The church on the corner across from Woolworths, Matalan and the Sainsbury grocery store. Has anyone taken any pictures of the Alfred Hitchcock or the William Morris exhibition house with all the beautiful tapestries and wallpaper hangings that have been put on fabric and sold by the Liberty of London store?

    • Hi there Stuart’s mum in Vancouver! Thank you for looking – it’s exciting that we have a global audience. I didn’t receive any contributions including the Alfred Hitchcock. I am reopening the online archive for contributions so perhaps we will get some then. William Morris’ house and it’s beautiful collection is not within the boundaries of Leytonstone hence it is not included in this particular archive. Perhaps someone could create a Waltham Forest box museum in the future?

  9. Catherine says:

    Great archive! Only wish I’d found the time to look sooner. Some really fantastic photos. Must have been really tough deciding what to print as there are so many to choose from. There are a few I would love to include in an exhibition if I end up curating (if the rain ever stops long enough for that garden party!) that I don’t think you’ve printed. You must let me know what’s the deal on that. In any case all your hard work is really paying off with this project and website. Well done Karen!

    • Thank you! And let’s hope the rain stops soon!

      Here’s a bit of official talk then to explain the printing situation for anyone who might want to know:
      If anyone wishes to add additional photographs to the box museum, they can at their own cost (my budget is long gone!) The images would require printing and backing in the same way as all the others. I can cost that up but without the bulk discount it is likely to be a costly process. If the new images are for exhibition purposes (and not to go in the box museum) then they can be printed in other ways for individual exhibitions. I would need to arrange printing to ensure copyright is not broken. Copyright still lies with the photographers so I would ask that all images are returned after the exhibition unless the photographer has granted permission for extra photographs to be retained by the curator. I hope that makes sense!

  10. […] of any images relating to Leytonstone – people, places, objects, artworks etc. It has an online archive and a box archive consisting of 100 printed […]

  11. Anita McCullough says:

    Thank you Karen. Much appreciated. Vestry say they don’t have any of that building, but I will persevere and keep looking. You are doing excellent work – aren’t the photos great? I really think so. I may have some to offer the Leytonstone Museum soon – will try to get some together over Christmas period. Best wishes, Anita
