The Romano-British period
The section of Lea Bridge Road from Whipps Cross to Knotts Green may follow the route of a Roman road. It is the boundary between the parishes of Walthamstow and Leyton.
A section of Roman road was recently discovered by Clyde Place on the Beaumont estate, Leyton 1. This was aligned northwest-southeast rather than northeast-southwest like Capworth Street, the Walthamstow Slip (see later reference) and Lea Bridge Road 1.
