William Morris Close greenspace - clearly shows two locations on the green where sub-surface trench shelters were constructed. Later - allegedly, 'poorly' filled in giving rise to rumours of ground movements and cracks appearing in nearby houses.

Walthamstow Fire Station moved here from High Street in 1924, and was rebuilt entirely in 2012 at a cost of £30million. The foundation stone from the 1920s site was earmarked for preservation before it was demolished but the local council's preservation officer failed to retrieve it - so it was broken up!
