Barkingside is a district of Ilford in the London Borough of Redbridge, east London.Barkingside is chiefly known for the children's charity Barnardo's, which was founded there in 1866, and still has its headquarters there. Some of the oldest buildings in Barkingside include the Barnardo's chapel, the underground station, which was originally an Edwardian railway station, and Holy Trinity Church, which dates from 1840. Barkingside is an ethnically and religiously diverse district notable for an unusually high concentration of London's Jewish population.HistoryBarkingside was historically part of Essex until the creation of the London Borough of Redbridge in 1965. Fullwell Cross takes its name from a medieval preaching cross that once stood there. Long before there was a church, monks from Barking Abbey would go there to conduct outdoor services for the farmers of Barkingside.EducationBarkingside has two secondary schools: Ilford County High School and King Solomon High School. Primary schools in the area include Clore Tikva Primary School, Fullwood Primary School and Mossford Green Primary School.AmenitiesMany of the buildings along the A123 High Street Barkingside are owned by entrepreneur Alan Sugar. At the northern end of the High Street is Fullwell Cross roundabout, which gives its name to the adjacent leisure centre and distinctive circular Grade II listed library building (both designed by the architect Frederick Gibberd) as well as the council neighbourhood bordering the north west of Barkingside proper.Take a peek at our world travel planner: Barkingside and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
