Magpie Close, near Forest Gate
Magpie Close, near Forest Gate
The curved walls at the entrance to Magpie Close suggest that this was once the gateway to the large building in the background.

The building was originally a school for poor children, opened in the 1850s. It subequently became a workhouse, then a hospital, closing in the 1980s. Housing and a park have since been developed on the grounds, and the building is now just a facade.
