Wallend (sometimes spelt as Wall End) is a locality in London's East End, located in the borough of Newham. It is a little-used name for the area lying to the north of Beckton between Barking and East Ham.[1] The name stems from an embankment wall that was formerly used to prevent flooding from the river Roding at the 'end' of East Ham.[2] Much of the area consists of terraced housing dating from the building-boom of the late 19th century.[3]
