Leytonstone these days is perhaps best known for being the birthplace of David Beckham. I used to have a Filipino friend who was a nurse at Whipps Cross hospital and I used to ask if there was a plaque or shrine there in his honour.

Over the years I have had many friends live (and still live) in Leytonstone. As a result I have become familiar and fond with the place as it sits comfortably and conveniently on the Central Line. Indeed I have almost moved to there a couple of times.

Until 1965 it was part of Essex.
