Hornchurch

Hornchurch. From ancient records there is a reference (in 1222) to the horned church (or monastery) in this district. Nothing of the monks' first church survives today, but the present building contains a bull's head and horns affixed to the east end, which has been here since at least 1610. The reason for this is rather obscure. It is possible that it could be a reference to a seal of a French monastery or that it could be a reference to the tanning industry which once flourished in this area.

The station was opened as HORNCHURCH by the London, Tilbury & Southend Railway on 1 May 1885, and was first used by Underground trains on 2 June 1902.
