Welcome to the Forest Gate Memory Map, where you can explore the history and myths of the local area. Move around the map and click on the markers to discover memories, stories, sounds and images connected to each place.

This map is a collaborative work in progress, and it reflects the contributions of the local community. If you have stories to share and want to get involved, contact us to find out about upcoming storytelling and mapping workshops. (email: forestgatearts@gmail.com).

The Forest Gate Memory Map has been created by Forest Gate Arts with local residents, businesses, historians and artists, through a partnership with researchers from the Bartlett Centre of Advanced Spatial Analysis, University College London. The project was made possible thanks to funding from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and the Bartlett Research Materialisation Grant.
