Secret Newham delves into the fascinating but often quirky and curious history of the towns that make up the borough of Newham in East London. From the origins of place names, memorials and street names to tales behind past and present industries and businesses, the sources of the area’s growth and wealth are revealed. Docks and shipping played a vital role until recent decades and other forms of transport also shaped the area, not least the railways in Stratford. The two world wars changed the face of much of Newham and many repurposed buildings can be found behind new facades. Newham’s parks and green spaces also have a story to tell and here sport has played a significant role, not least with hosting much of the 2012 London Olympics.


With tales of remarkable characters, unusual events and tucked-away or disappeared historical buildings and locations, Secret Newham will appeal to all those with an interest in the history of this corner of London.
