Mark Gorman & Peter Williams
A Short Illustrated History
Once part of the riverbed of the Thames, in medieval times the Flats became grazing land. Over the last two centuries the Flats has hosted funfairs and football, become a site for political protest and been a key part of London’ anti-aircraft defences in two world wars.
Wanstead Flats: A Short Illustrated History includes a number of never-before-published photos.
