The station arch that welcomed the Queen

Chingford Station from 1882, with its celebratory arch to welcome Queen Victoria by train.

Victoria thrilled the locals with a personal appearance to dedicate the forest to her people as a result of the Epping Forest act of 1878.

Whilst Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth II both celebrated their Diamond Jubilee (60 years), the Queen becomes the first British monarch ever to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee after 70 years of service.
