Facts about Forest Gate
Forest Gate is a residential district in east London, England, in the London Borough of Newham. The area has never been an administrative unit and so has never had any formal boundaries. Therefore, it is often seen as conterminous with the E7 postal area and so it lies on both sides of the boundary between West and East Ham.
The area lies roughly 7 miles northeast of Charing Cross and is bordered by Manor Park to the east and Stratford town center to the west. Forest Gate is 1.5 miles east of Westfield Stratford City and the 2012 Olympic Park. The northern half of the busy Green Street runs through it and from 2019, Forest Gate railway station will be served by Crossrail.
History of Forest Gate
Forest Gate station first opened in 1840 by the Eastern Counties Railway, a year after the line was built, but was closed in 1843, before re-opening on 31 May 1846 following pressure from local residents.
On 24 May 1953, at around 4 a.m., three members of train crew were injured in a collision between a freight train and a staff train that occurred east of Forest Gate station. A London-bound freight train that had started out at the Goodmayes goods yard was crossing from the electric line over to the main line when a staff train bound for the Gidea Park sidings passed a signal at danger and collided with the goods train at a speed of about 35 mph. A Ministry of Transport and Civil Aviation report blamed the driver of the Gidea Park train for his failure to “pay attention to signals”.
