Hello there. My grandfather had the tobacconist & confectioners in Church Road, opposite Morris Avenue. You must be older than me, as I cannot remember much about the war. I do remember that a Mrs Boyd was a customer in my grandad's shop, and I seem to remember she wore a fur coat at the time. My mother worked in the shop of the Advance Laundry and I worked in the factory for a year and a half when I left school in 1958. My Grandads name was Mr Allen and had the shop for about 18 years and left in the late fifties due to bad health. My parents lived at no.1 Morris Avenue in what was then a downstairs flat, and I lived with my grandparents at the shop, 123 Church Road.

Hello I have just moved into the area and am looking for a good gym near to where I live. I live in Durham road. Can someone help me out please?
I take it you do not get the train before 10am in the morning, because that's probably the only time you can get a sit on a train from Manor Park.
Chennai dosa place is quite nice with reasonable prices.
Manor Park is not exactly where the rich people hang out so don't expect the wealthy crowd here. However that ain't all bad by any means (I have lived here for my 50 years!). But I'd say you do need to be careful at night - there is plenty of crime about, but I haven't suffered over the years. There is some great green area - Wanstead Park takes some beating (not far North-ish from Manor Park station) and Wanstead Flats is the inner-most part of Epping Forest where Henry 8th used to hunt his deer (some of them are still there but mainly further into the Forest!).
Can anyone recommend any good Take Aways in East Ham/Manor Park/Little Ilford? Have just moved into the area and am hungry...
My experience of trains at Manor Park is that they are often packed ( I usually get the the 0821 am train). Especially like today when they put on a 'short' train and lots of people could not even get on. The station is filthy I don't know if it is ever cleaned. At night there are often gangs of youths hanging around.
Does anyone have a one/two bed flat/house with kitchen diner to rent in Manor Park. I am looking for one close to High Street North - towards Romford Road end. I am aware of the adverts in the shop windows near the East Ham station.
The building is still there but is now small units. The Aveue pub is still there but is derelict and some of the row of houses that were in between Morris Avenue and Browning Road is now a temple

Hi I was brought up in Manor Park, I lived in Morris Ave for over 20 years. I am in the middle of writing my life story. Called the Blitz Kid as I lived there right through the blitz.
(1) Could any one tell me if the Advance Laundry that backed onto the whole length of Morris Avenue is still there, if not, what has been built in its place?
(2) If anyone lives in, or near Morris Avenue. Could I ask a huge favour. If they own a digital camera, would they take a photo of number 9 and if possible a second shot from the corner showing a number of the houses which include number 9. The photos as jpegs, or any information could be emailed to me at
I used to stay in Sheringham Avenue and Romford Road in 2002 and 2003.I am currently wrapping up my studies in America. I will return to Manor Park early '06 and I need a house to share with 2,3 or 4 decent tenants.Please contact me with any information and weekly or monthly rents.

hello i've lived in manor park with a friend who owns her property for nearly a year now and i think the area is ok, i've never had any problems i think some of the best places are on the avenues such as 1st 2nd and 3rd ave etc.... in little ilford its about a 10min walk to the station (overground manor park). and im not so sure about good gyms i haven't seen any but if there are then they're most likely to be in ilford,
i hope i've helped you! and my best suggestion would be to take a walk around the area in the evening with a friend to check the safety aspect.
chenai dosa is great!!!

As with many GP practices around the country, and as highlighted to Tony Blair in his TV Election panel meeting, Claremont clinic does not take appointments in advance. You must queue up at the door or try to book an appointment for the SAME day, on the phone when the office opens at 9AM.
And they are very busy already. Very busy.

Hi I am planning to move to Manor Park area. Would you guys recomend this area ? I mean is it safe? Is there any safe, nice green area? and one more - is there any gym??? thanks so much! where eles would you recomend - East ,zone 3/4 area???
I realise this website doesn't include these, but does anyone have any knowledge or information about the Goodmayes/Chadwell Heath areas. Is there much deprivation (if any), or is it quite nice? Are the loitering youths rough with unwanted verbal (or other) tendencies. I would greatly appreciate any information that anybody could give me. Thankyou very much.

You can buy membership to 4 local council-operated gyms for 33 a month. i usually go to the Atherton Leisure Centre on Romford Road, which has a decent gym, pool and tons of free classes if you want them.
Great value, good food and free delivery Main course, side dish, rice and Naan bread from around £10
There are lots of parks in the area including Wanstead Flats
Its easy to get into the City and if the trains aren't running you can take the tube from East Ham
There's a Tesco Express on Romford Road by Woodgrange Park train station and a Sainsbury's in East Ham which is easy to walk to
Theres a great sports centre in East Ham on Barking Road. Its owned by the local authority but its only recently opened so its quite swanky
The trains from Manor Park to Liverpool Street are fine in the morning. In fact I can't remember the last time I wasn't able to get a seat.
