Walthamstow Central


Walthamstow Central was recorded as Wilcumestowe c.1075 and the name may be derived from the Old English wilcume, 'welcome' and stow, 'a holy place' - 'the holy place with a welcome'. Alternatively the name may derive from a religious place once founded here by a woman named Wilcume. It was recorded as Walthanstowe in 1446.

The original station was opened as WALTHAMSTOW (HOE STREET) by the Great Eastern Railway on 26 April 1870; it was re-named WALTHAMSTOW CENTRAL on 6 May 1968. Underground trains ran from 1 September 1968.
