Wanstead (/ˈwɒnstᵻd/) is a suburban area in the London Borough of Redbridge, North-East London (formerly in Essex). The name is from the Anglo-Saxon words wænn and stede, meaning "settlement on a small hill".

It will, assuming the proposals from the Boundary Commission are enacted, change from being part of Leyton and Wanstead and instead become part of a new Leytonstone and Wanstead constituency which will also contain Wood Street bits of Walthamstow. Leyton will become part of the Walthamstow constituency.

Welcome to The Duke. We are a neighbourhood pub & dining room in the heart of Wanstead Village focused on delicious food, fantastic beer and a truly local vibe.

The Royal Commercial Travellers Schools were founded in 1845 by John Robert Cuffley, first in Wanstead, moving to Pinner in 1855. The schools at Wanstead provided housing, food, clothing and education for up to 130 children of commercial travellers who had died or became unable to earn their livelihood.[2]

Choose from bavette, flat iron, juicy rib-eye, Cote de Boeuf or even the big daddy T-Bone, served on the bone for two people to share (or one if you think you can handle it!).  As always, there’s a great range of sides and sauces to choose from too.

But the recommendations are different from those made by the Boundary Commission in 2011, which we reported here, which would have meant a return to the old days of a Wanstead and Woodford constituency.

Lady Catherine, the wronged heroine of Wanstead, much abused by her slob of a husband, William Pole-Tylney Long-Wellesley, died heartbroken on this day in 1825. (The book The Angel and the Cad is highly recommended.)

Term TimeMonday  to Friday 5.30pm – 9.30pmSaturday & Sunday 8am – 6pm

Meanwhile here are some more views of the Fringe so far…

Despite the rainy start the Wanstead Fringe got going on Saturday by sheltering under awnings, gazebos and umbrellas, including the fantastic human brass section Jonny Holliday, above, who played at the Duke Street party. And there’s a good forecast – actually a very good forecast – for the rest of the week, so fingers are crossed for the many events yet to come.

For Prospective Parents and Pupils - Year 7 Intake 2017

Wanstead will be affected by the proposed changes to parliamentary boundaries, but not in the way one might have expected.

The case against Sliced by the North Circular and the M11 link road, against which many citizens rose up in the 1990s and declared the independent republic of Wanstonia. They had a point.

Sunday 9am-5pm from 8th May                         

We just ♥️ live music at The Duke and to celebrate this, we have a different but equally amazing and talented band perform every Sunday from 7-9pm.

Wanstead High School is a thriving 11-18 comprehensive school in the heart of the community.

We've had some problems with damp in the library, so that contractors can investigate the cause , we've cordoned off sections of the building and have restricted access to a number of PC’s . (updated Friday 16 September 2016 17:45pm )

Wanstead is home to a large comprehensive school, Wanstead High School. There are six primary schools in Wanstead: Wanstead church school, Our Lady of Lourdes, Aldersbrook, Nightingale, Snaresbrook and St. Joseph's Convent school which is an all-girls private school.

Although The George is not a particularly old building, there has been a pub on that site for hundreds of years. Set in to the side of the pub is a plaque dating from 1752 which was formerly part of an older pub building. The plaque is inscribed with the eccentrically spelled verse:

All our cask ales are £3 a pint every Monday-Wednesday from 12pm to 11.30pm. Please note the Cask ales available change regularly.

We’ve got bags of comfortable space, good wifi, great coffee, discounted lunch for coworkers and lots of power points (even fancy USB ones).

Maya Anaokar "While it's easier to get a coffee or a haircut than to buy a pair of knickers on the high street, independent shops still manage to make it. Favourites include fabric emporium Stitch, the Art Shop, gifts at the Orange Tree and clothes at Coco."

St Luke's Church, Camden, demolished for the building of the original St Pancras Station was re-erected piece by piece in 1867 as a Congregational church in Wanstead, and still exists (now a United Reformed church).[7]

On Sunday children will be shown the secrets of comics and cartoons (in a now sold-out event), and on Monday there’s Jingle Bop, Musical Memories and a demonstration by Fabien from Nice Croissant and Kevin from Wanstead Fish.
