History [ edit ]
The road takes its name from
Lea Bridge, which crosses the River Lea at Leyton Marshes. The first bridge over the river at this point was built in 1745 to replace a ferry; at the same time, the name Lea Bridge Road was adopted for an existing lane previously called Mill Field Lane.
