Crooked Billet is a roundabout above the A406, named after the pub which stood on the corner of the original staggered crossroads.
The crossroads was the junction of Chingford Road, Billet Road and Blind Lane - now the route of the North Circular to the east.
Walthamstow Avenue was built in the 1920s. It was a single carriageway which merged with Billet Road, and then continued as a very short dual carriageway towards a new roundabout. From here the A406 continued east along what was now called Wadham Road.
A larger roundabout was built in the 1970s. This used land from the sports ground and involved demolishing houses on Cecil Road.
The tunnel under the junction was built in the 1990s, with the A406 east of here being upgraded.
