The Borough of Waltham Forest is in northeast London, England. The borough was formed in 1965 from the merger of the municipal boroughs of Leyton, Walthamstow and Chingford; it took its name from Waltham Forest – an institution which managed deer in south-west Essex.

Walthamstow was severely damaged by bombing in the Second World War, and after the war its appearance was much altered by the scale and variety of municipal housing schemes. Although Walthamstow in 1971 was densely built up, the disposition of the reservoirs on the west and the surviving forest on the east still distinguished it from similar urbanized areas.

The ducklings club most likely refers to a youth swimming lessons group in the UK.
