The pictures above show just some of the history of the village. If you are interested in learning more there is a collection of local history books available in the library or you can find out more in Cedric Pulford’s short summary, “Big Enough But Small Enough” or view our timeline to get a picture of the Parish through the centuries. You can also learn about the stories behind our street names.

The railway played an important part in the development of Woodford. You can learn more about it on our Woodford & the Railway page.
