Why is Chingford called Chingford?
Chingford’s name may be derived from words meaning ‘ford of the stump-dwellers’, a reference to houses built on poles to keep them clear of the marshy ground, but others have suggested that ‘ching’ is a corruption of ‘shingle’. Either way, the early riverside settlement was probably located in modern South Chingford.

Is Brixton safe at night?
Brixton is perfectly fine to be in. I’ve been there à few times, nighttime included, and my brother lives there. Really, it’s fine. If anything it may be good for you if you’re looking to stay out till late as Brixton has a decent night life / scene, so you won’t be travelling a lot to get back home.
