The name Walthamstow is said to derive from the Old English wilcume and stow, collectively meaning ‘welcome to the holy place’. In 1446 the area was recorded as Walthanstowe.
William Morris, the pre-Raphaelite artist, textile designer and writer, was born in Walthamstow on 24 March 1834, and the William Morris Gallery is nearby.
