Wanstead weekend photo, LXXIX

Geoff Wilkinson writes on Wanstead Daily Photo: “Now here’s a thing that always intrigues me when I pass through Voluntary Place. I know that the pair of doors on the left lead to someone’s garden but what about this pair of black doors on the right? There appears to be a factory type building behind them but I have never seen them open or any activity there. Is it a factory, converted into something else, who knows?”

  1. Up the airy mountain, down the rushy glen, we daren’t go a hunting, for fear of little men. You see, nobody ever goes in… and nobody ever comes out. 🙂

  2. My father was born in 1920 in Spratt Hall Road backing onto Voluntary Place. There was an asbestos factory there in those days. The house was always covered in dust from the factory but he survived and is still going strong at 94. Later, Bearmans of Leytonstone department store had a furniture factory there and garaged their delivery vehicles.
