We went all the way to the Northern end of the Victoria Line, where there be dragons.
To E17 and the Wood Street Walls.
The Wood Street Walls came into being as a desire to bring art into the community
and there are currently 17 murals around Walthamstow.
Not all are to my cup of tea, but that’s the nature of art, isn’t it?
Our favourite was the chocolate Labrador with the ducks.
No surprise there.
I first heard of the murals thanks to a post by Jaime at Angloyankophile
and you can learn more about the Wood Street Walls here.
If you fancy checking out the walls for yourself, you can download a map here,
but I also strongly recommend the use of Google Maps or a current A-Z.
After a few hours wandering the streets of E17 and coping with a difficult The Boy Child,
we were in need of tea and cake.
And thanks to Jaime, we knew exactly where to go …
