Wantz Stream in Dagenham
Wantz Stream in Dagenham
Wantz Stream is a tributary of the Beam River and is seen here, looking upstream, in the Beam Parklands.

Wantz, incidentally, is derived from the Middle English word wente meaning a way. Where four ways or paths met, or in other words a crossroads, the location was known as "four wantz", so the stream probably rises at a historic crossroads upstream in the Romford area.
