Sash Windows Leytonstone

Sash windows are a traditional style of glazing unit seen in many Leytonstone properties. Traditionally manufactured from wood, uPVC replacement sash windows have become popular due to the increased lifespan, design and colours available. When compared to the cost of replacing wooden sash windows. uPVC wins hands down. There is no need to compromise on the aesthetic of your property as all traditional styles and shapes are available in uPVC with easy maintenance operation.

Each sash tilts inwards for ease of cleaning. Requiring only a wipe with a damp cloth, the frames and glass can be cleaned from inside the property, which is particularly convenient for windows that are installed on upper floors. All our windows come with traditional features such as sash horns, handles and catches. For more information on our uPVC double glazed windows, doors and conservatories, please see our double glazing page.

Facts aboutLeytonstone

History

The main thoroughfare, Leytonstone High Road, is part of an ancient highway from Epping to London, on the borders of Epping Forest. A small hamlet at Leytonstone had existed since the early 14th century, when it formed part of the parish of Leyton in the county of Essex.

The name Leytonstone, originally “Leyton-atte-Stone”, comes from a distance marker called the High Stone, which stands at the junction of Hollybush Hill (the A1199 road with Woodford) and New Wanstead (the A113 road with Woodford Bridge), near the eastern bounds of the parish. It is a restored 18th-century obelisk set up on an earlier stump, traditionally described as a Roman milestone, possibly marking an extension of the Roman road from Dunmow to Chigwell into London.[2] Two of the obelisk inscriptions are still just legible, others not:”To Epping XI Miles through Woodford, Loughton””To Ongar XV Miles through Woodford Bridge, Chigwell, Abridge”Other Roman archaeological features have been found in the Leyton area, including “a Roman cemetery south of Blind Lane, and massive foundations of some Roman building, with quantities of Roman brick… discovered in the grounds of Leyton Grange.”
