Wood Street High Street

Wood Street is a unique small town centre which has become a location for small independent businesses, particularly more niche and boutique retailers and places to eat and drink. It is home to a growing arts scene, including the work and new studio base for Wood Street Walls. It sits comfortably as a distinct and separate centre from Walthamstow and Leytonstone, but with clear connections to arts and creative activity that is seen in both of these places, as well as in Blackhorse Lane.  

The Marlowe Road estate regeneration project, Feature 17 is a major development with new homes, shops and play space at the heart of the town centre delivered by Countryside Properties working in partnership with the council.
