Leytonstone is an area in east London, England, within the London Borough of Waltham Forest. Situated 7 miles (11 km) north-east of Charing Cross, it adjoins Wanstead to the east, Forest Gate to the south-east, Stratford to the south-west, Leyton to the west, and Walthamstow to the north-west.
Historically, Leytonstone formed part of the ancient parish of Leyton in the Becontree hundred of Essex. The first documented evidence of settlement is from the 14th century, describing a hamlet at ‘Leyton-atte-stone’; a reference to the Roman milestone located within the area, that formed a northerm boundary of the parish. It remained largely rural until 1856, when it became part of the London postal district and a railway station was opened (now on the Central line). By the end of the 19th century, Leytonstone had become a dormitory town within the conurbation of London. When Greater London was created in 1965, Leytonstone became part of the then new London Borough of Waltham Forest.
