Castle Green
Castle Green
The name dates back over 200 years to a time when the area was rural. The "castle" that gave its name to the place was a castellated house which was built around 1800 and survived until 1938.

When the Becontree Estate was built in the 1920s and early 1930s, a strip of open land north of Ripple Road was left as a buffer between housing to the north and land set aside for industry on the former marshland to the south. This is now known as Castle Green.
