A view looking north along Cranbrook Road (Ilford, Essex) just past the junction of the Drive, towards the crossing of the Cranbrook. The brook flowed from the lake at Valentines Park, under Cranbrook Road and south to join the River Roding. By the side of Cranbrook Road it formed an area of standing water known as ‘The Wash’, which was used by local farmers and horse owners as a source of drinking and washing water for their livestock.
