Dagenham is a suburban town in east London, in the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham, 12 miles from London. From the Medieval period until the 20th century Dagenham village did not alter its appearance much. The main street, Crown Street, ran east from the church and crossed the valley of the Wantz stream. After crossing the stream the road turned sharply south and became Bull Lane, ending in the Bull Public House. Today only the parish church of St Peter and St Paul, the Cross Keys public house and the Vicarage remain of the old village since the building of the vast Becontree estate by the London County Council in the early 1920s and the relocation of the Ford Motor Company from Manchester to Dagenham in 1931. A 500 acre riverside site was developed to become Europe's largest car plant. Valence House Museum is the only surviving of the 5 manor houses of Dagenham. It is sited in parkland and is partially surrounded by a moat. It now houses the borough's local history museum and art gallery. The Mall on Dagengham Heathway is the town's indoor shopping centre, and Eastbrookend Country Park is a reclaimed area of 197 acres of countryside in the Dagenham Corridor.
