Independent Living in Waltham Forest

Originally founded in 1656 by the will of John Smith, the Leyton United/Church Road Almshouses in Waltham Forest were rebuilt in 1885 in a Tudor style by Richard Creed FRIBA, who also designed the nearby Essex Cricket pavilion. The Almshouses feature knapped flint work and early Crittall windows. The independent living scheme consists of six one-bedroom properties.

Leyton United joined Pathways on 1st August 2012.
