It's ten years ago this week since a host of new sites were proposed for Waltham Forest's heritage list.

Pubs, churches, a college and even a small metal hut have all been recognised on a new proposed list of the borough's historically important sites.

The council is currently consulting on the additions to its 'Local List', which honours heritage and architecture in Waltham Forest.

Among them is the grand Waltham Forest College building in Forest Road, Walthamstow, which was built in 1939, Leytonstone and Chingford's war memorials and two historic water fountains near Epping Forest.

Other highlights include Stafford Hall in Walthamstow – a green tin hut which was erected in 1900 as a temporary church while worshippers were waiting for St Barnabas Church next door to be built.

Pubs also feature prominently, such as the Queens Arms in Orford Road, Walthamstow, the Bell in Forest Road and the King William IV in Leyton High Road.

Its landlord Geoff Torr said: “We're pleased that the pub's history has been recognised. Apparently there's been a pub on this site since 1656, and it was rebuilt in 1896. It's great to work here and be a part of that.

“We try and keep the décor in line with its history and not be like a chain pub, so that people feel at home when they come in.”

Several churches are also recognised, such as the Former Church of St Luke in Ruckholt Road, Leyton and Marsh Street & Trinity United Reformed Church in Orford Road, Walthamstow.

Its church secretary Derek Collins said: “Currently we're an amalgamation of several different churches in Walthamstow that have come together over the years, so it is a bit of history.

“I'm not an expert on architecture but we had a complete renovation five or six years ago so it's in a really good condition. It's pleasing to know people value the building.”

However not everyone is happy with the list.

As previously reported, campaigners who want Walthamstow Stadium to reopen as a dog track have expressed outrage at its proposed deletion.

And others have also accused the council of missing out important sites.

Maureen Measure of the Leyton and Leytonstone Historical Society said buildings like the Red Lion pub in Leytonstone High Road and Leyton County Cricket Ground should have been included.

Many proposed deletions from the list, such as several homes in Beulah Road, Walthamstow, and Sophia Road in Leyton, are being removed because of "unsympathetic" alterations to their historic structures.
