Corn Way, E11

Place Name

An area much redeveloped¬†throughout the 20thCentury. Occupied from 2001, this is part of the redevelopment of the Cathall Estate by the Waltham Forest Housing Action Trust in which street names were inspired by rural estates and plants of use to people, perhaps as a reminder of the area’s agricultural past. As well as Corn Way, there is Birch Grove, Peppermint Place and Pine Close. There is also a cluster of streets nearby named after fruits, namely: Pear Road, Apple Road, Melon Road, Orange Grove and Peach Grove.
