Remembering Marks Gate and North Chadwell Heath
Eastside Community Heritage is happy to announce a new oral history project ‘Remembering Marks Gate and North Chadwell Heath’ that aims to collect local people’s stories for an exhibition about their memories of the area.
Marks Gate has a rich history - the name originally referring to the entrance or gate into Hainault Forest located near the medieval manor of ‘Marks’ which stood on what is now Warren Hall Farm.
“My first impression when I got there before I even got into the school and when we arrived and from the bus and walked along the road it was the fresh air; it smelt of the country side and the air seemed so much fresher.”
Rosemary Rodgers, Marks Gate
