Woodford to Stratford Tube Walk

Woodford to South Woodford

To complete the circular section of the Central line I go back to Woodford. I head out of the station and go down St. Barnabas Road.

At the end of the road is a subway which gets me past the North Circular Road. There are quite a number of signs warning that you might die if you attempt to cross the road, so taking the subway is probably best.

After walking down Mulberry Way I reach South Woodford tube station.

South Woodford to Snaresbrook

I then walk along George Lane and Hermon Hill.

Near the end of Hermon Hill is Snaresbrook underground station.

Snaresbrook to Leytonstone

There are many blocks of flats on New Wanstead.

At then end of New Wanstead I have to go through two tunnels to get past the large roundabout and onto Leytonstone Hight Road. From here it is a short walk along some smaller roads before I reach Leytonstone tube station.

On reaching this station I have finished the Central line loop. As the other larger section of the loop took about five hours to go round I’d estimate that the whole loop would take about six hours to complete.

Leytonstone to Leyton

I rejoin the Leytonstone High Road and pass some shops and the fire station.

I head east along Cathall Road past the roundabout and then south by a cemetery. As I get close to the station I see a sign on the pavement pointing out the Greenwich Meridian. After getting back into the half of the world with negative longitudes I reach Leyton tube station.

Leyton to Stratford

On Leyton Road I spot a local video shop and some boxing related artwork.

On Angel Lane is a good view of this oval shaped tower and then after walking around Great Eastern Road I arrive at Stratford tube station. This is the second time I’ve been to this station as it was the final stop for my Jubilee line walk.
