Links & Resources

If you live in an Ex Warner property or you have an interest in their history, the following links and resources might be of use.

Waltham Forest Leaseholders

We have spoken to a number of people about lease extensions and insurance for Ex Warner properties, this is not something we are able to help with, but we suggest that you contact Waltham Forest Leaseholders for advice.


Historical Societies

Walthamstow Historical Society holds the remains of any Warner Estate archive, including photographs, maps and ephemera. They also run regular walks and talks about the estate in Walthamstow. They have a couple of resources available from Vestry House Museum:

  • A brief history Courtenay Warner & Warner Estate by Philip C. Plummer & Walter H. Bowyer £4.50
  • Warner Estate Album, 1903 CD of images £5.00 (please note we had these rephotographed for our exhibition so they are not the same reproductions)

Leyton & Leytonstone Historical Society has regular events and would be the people to contact about the Leyton side of the former Warner Estate.

Vestry House Museum

Vestry House Museum holds the boroughs archives and has a large collection of local photographs and a local studies room. Please contact the museum for details.

    Could you please tell me which were the first Warner maisonettes to be built? We lived at 389 Higham Hill Rd, an upstairs flat,from 1982 to 1991. I understood that it was built around 1897 but am not sure if this is correct. Any information would be much appreciated. With many thanks,

      Hello Rosemary, the first ones were in Leucha Road and around there from the late 1890s. Lucy
