William Morris, to whom all lovers of old buildings are in debt, grew up here in the 1840s when the area was ‘all flat pasture.. except for a few gardens’. Urbanisation was rapid: from 5000 souls in 1851 to 121,000 a century later.
Some rural atmosphere survives in the locality of the church with its 18th century houses. More modern dwellings still uphold building traditions with that most durable of features: the natural wooden floor.
A durability that requires care and maintenance to prolong its virtues of hygiene and beauty - and ensure it adds value as it matures.
So if your floors have suffered an excess of wear and careless feet, wood floor repair and restoration will bring them back to their glowing best.
Whether your floor is in the home, shop, office, school, bar, café, gym or restaurant – call on Sanding Wood Floors for all your floor refinishing needs in Walthamstow E17.
Whatever your floor type - hardwood boards or parquet blocks - and no matter its age and condition, we’ll repair and replace any damaged timber and fill in the gaps to prevent draughts.
We’ll then sand away the old layers of paint, dirt and sealant to a smooth finish. The bare wood is then ready for staining if required - to be sealed with a new protective layer of natural oil, hard wax or lacquer.

By working flexibly - at weekends or even overnight - around your home or business schedule, we ensure a brief period of inconvenience and loss of business.

Useful facts about Walthamstow:
Walthamstow is a district of north east London, England, located in the London Borough of Waltham Forest. It is situated 6.4 miles (10.3 km) north-east of Charing Cross. The area is identified in the London Plan as one of 35 major centres in Greater London. Walthamstow is bordered to the north by Chingford, south by Leyton and Leytonstone, east by the southern reaches of Epping Forest at Woodford and west by Tottenham and the River Lea valley. Leyton High Road, Hoe Street, Chingford Road, Chingford Mount form part of an ancient route from London to Waltham Abbey.
Walthamstow is recorded c. 1075 as Wilcumestowe ("The Place of Welcome") and in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Wilcumestou. King John visited Shern Hall (Shernhall Street), in 1213; the building survived until 1896. At one point Walthamstow was just a culmination of five small villages, and affairs were discussed at Vestry House, acting as the first town hall. In 1870 it had grown to the size of a small suburb and a town hall was built in Orford Road from which affairs of the village were run ( which now takes place in Forest Road - since 1941).
The High Street is dominated by Walthamstow Market, which began in 1885, and occupies all but the last 100 metres of the street. It is reputed to be a mile long, but in fact measures approximately one kilometre. The market is open five days a week (not Sunday or Monday), and there is currently a Sunday farmers' market. Occasionally, a 'French' market takes place although the stalls are not necessarily French. The street is lined with shops: a selection of high-street chains, but also many independent small shops specialising in food, fabrics, household goods etc. as well as cafés.
