On the other side of the bridge after which the area is named is Leyton in the London Borough of Waltham Forest.

History

In 1582 ''Mill Fields Lane'' ran from Upper Clapton to ''Jeremy's Ferry'' in the Leyton Marshes. At the same spot a timber bridge was built in 1745, and the road became known as ''Lea Bridge Road'', with a tollgate at the Clapton end.[http://www.british-history.ac.uk/report.asp?compid=22693 'Hackney: Communications', A History of the County of Middlesex: Volume 10: Hackney (1995), pp. 4-10] Date accessed: 1 November 2006
