Green Street is a road in the London Borough of Newham, East London, which forms much of the boundary between East and West Ham and ends in the Forest Gate area of Stratford.
Green Street is best known for the former Boleyn Ground, home to West Ham United from 1904–2016 and its wide range of shops and market outlets. It was also the site of Green Street House - also known as Boleyn Castle - for more than 400 years until demolished in 1955. Green Street House was located between the street and the Boleyn Ground.
Green Street runs from the originally Roman Romford Road, in the north, to the Barking Road in the south. The northern part, near the Romford Road was at one time also known as Gypsy Lane as it was often used by gypsies. The junction with Barking Road, by the Boleyn Tavern, was known as Morley's Corner after the onetime owners of Green Street House.
The local tradition is that Anne Boleyn, second wife of Henry VIII, lived at Green Street House and that the King would visit to court her. There isn't any documentary evidence to support this, and there are grounds to believe it to be mistaken.
In 1931 Gandhi visited London for a period of 3 months for talks on the future of India, he based himself at Kingsley Hall in Bromley-by-Bow and was enthusiastically received by East Enders. It is said that during his stay Gandhi visited the Boleyn Tavern and drank cream soda while discussing radical politics and football with local people.
Gandhi was a keen football fan and already had a strong connection to West Ham United through his friendship with its founder, Arnold Hills, while living in London completing his law studies in 1888-91. During this period Hills brought the young Gandhi onto the executive committee of the London Vegetarian Society. Gandhi also met Charlie Chaplin in nearby Canning Town.
The film Green Street and its sequels were named after the street and focussed on a fictional group of football hooligans.
