Arty Langthorne Park



Arty Langthorne Park

A new arty park in Leyton with some unique sculptures.

Location: Birch Grove, Leyton

Description: This 4 and-a-half acre park was the first new park opened in Waltham Forest this millenium, and was inaugerated by local actress Meera Syal on 17th June 2000.

The park is on land once part of Stratford-Langthorne Abbey's estate, which was founded in 1135. The West Ham Union Workhouse was built near here in 1842 to provide relief to the poor, housing almost 1000 inmates from Walthamstow, Leyton, Stratford and West Ham. The original building have been converted into accommodation and the grounds into this park.

The park features children's play areas and a cafe with a mosaique (by Stewart Hale) and some striking specially commissioned art features. Don't miss Robert Koenig's unusual oak totem figures. Also Tom Norris's unusual wooden seating area made from old railway sleepers to reflect the heritage of Leytonstone. And then there's Dee Honeybun's wonderful carved clay panels and Stewart Hale's mosaic sign and mosaic trail.
