Chandos Road, Stratford, London

Chandos Road is a residential street in Stratford, originally built in the 1860s.

Following the expansion of the Stratford Railway Works in the 1870s, the demand for residential properties in the town increased and Chandos Road was extended at its eastern end.[1]

During the 1980s, the area was redeveloped and the houses on the extension of Chandos Road were demolished.
