Bromley by Bow

The ancient parish of Bromley was the site of a hunting lodge known as the Old Palace, built in 1606 by James I of England, just after the union of the crowns with Scotland in 1603.  A timber-framed servants' building became the Seven Stars inn, which was demolished in 1895, two years after the demolition of the Palace (by then a state school), which caused an outcry amongst historians.  No listed building status in those days.
The Seven Stars was replaced by a Victorian pub of the same name, used by London Transport to name the terminus of local bus routes; the building still stands but is no longer a pub.
Back down Bow Road is the tube station, recently refurbished in a PPP pantomime - read all about it.
