Stratford Area Guide

History of Stratford

The name "Stratford" comes from the Old English word for "street" and "ford" (a river crossing).

The Abbey of St Mary's, founded in 1135, was one of the largest of the Cistercian order until its destruction by Henry VIII. Nothing remains of it today but archeological digs are currently underway.

As many areas surrounding London, Stratford was a rural settlement until it was rapidly populated after the building of the railways to cope with London’s ever expanding population during the second half of the 19th century.

Stratford is now part of a massive regeneration programme with upcoming 2012 Olympics which is completely changing the area. New transport links are being added, including Startford International where the cross channel link will be stoppoing. High speed commuter trains to London and Kent will also soon be running. This is likely to bring many businesses in the area and it is likely to have skycrapers on its skyline in the next few years.

Property prices are increasing as a result. Stratford has wide choice of properties ranging from ex-local authority to garden tearrced houses. It has a good shopping centre with another being planned which will be as vast as Bluewater. There is a good choice of bars and restaurants in the area. With its DLR link to Docklands, it already has been attracting many workers there because of its more affordable prices.
