The E postcode district is known as the Eastern or London E postcode area. It covers parts of East London and parts of Sewardstone in Essex. The E13 postcode district is situated in the London Borough of Newham and is often known as the Plaistow district, because it covers the area of Plaistow, as well as some parts of West Ham and Upton Park. There are a couple of theories as to how the area of Plaistow got its name. One theory suggests that Plaistow comes from ‘Plagestoue’. This is thought to have origins in the Old English language, as ‘Pleg’ meant sports, and ‘stowe’ meant place. Therefore the name ‘Plagestoue’ is thought to translate into ‘playing place’.

The E13 postcode district, or Plaistow, has much history and many claims to fame. It is known that the area experienced a high level of damage during The Blitz (WWII). Another historical element to the area is that one of its oldest landmarks, The Black Lion public house, dates back to the 1740s. The public house has claims to fame of its own, as it has been frequented by various West Ham United football players since the 1960s. On top of this, the area is connected to the highwayman known as Dick Turpin, as one of his first crimes was the stealing of oxen from Mr Giles of Plaistow.
