Bethnal Green
Bethnal Green. Blithehale was the recorded name for this district during the 13th century.

The second element hale means - 'an angle or corner of land'. Maybe Blithe is a corruption of the personal name Blida, a family who resided here in the reign of Edward I (1272-1307), or perhaps refers to an ancient stream of this area called Bythe. The “village green at Bathon's river meadow” could be the complete meaning of the name. It has had many changes of spelling until recorded as Bethnal Greene in 1657. On what remains of the Green now stand St John's Church (built in 1825-8), the Bethnal Green Museum and the local public gardens.

The committee of the New Works Programme 1935/40 con¬sidered the name of BETHNAL to avoid confusion with the LNER station of Bethnal Green Junction, although when the station opened as BETHNAL GREEN on 4 December 1946 the LNER had adopted the same name for their own station.
