The Seeds of Elm Park The story of Elm Park begins in 1933, when the name was devised, derived from Elm Farm, first recorded in 1777. It was part of the South End ward of the parish of Hornchurch, within the royal manor and liberty of Havering. The area’s transition from farms to suburban development was planned by Richard Costain and Sons Ltd., drawing on the garden city movement ideas.

A Community Blossoms Elm Park has been connected to central London by the electrified District line service since 1935, forming part of the interwar private housing boom. After World War II, the area expanded with social housing and became part of Greater London in 1965.

Modern Elm Park: A District Centre Today, Elm Park is identified as a district centre in the London Plan, with several streets of shops and a priority for regeneration. It stands as a symbol of suburban development and community spirit.
