please empty your brain below

hopefully I'll be seeing the last mile of todays in less than 10 hours.

I know a lot of this area is basically a rundown vacant dirtpile, but it gives the place a great deal of it's character.

When is gets erased will it leave a gleaming characterless blot on the landscape? Or is it only right that the city evolves and changes with the times? Currently I don't know what to think.

I think there are probably more of these fascinating areas where nature meets decaying small industry in East London than anywhere else in the capital. I love it all and shall miss what we lose very much.

Nice pix BTW

i don't think you'll have much luck getting rid of the Bloggerbar

but - if you were to start your content at the 31st row of pixels, you should be able to see everything.

the bar is partly to deal with people who have been using spam to promote blog-based redirect sites - think mortgage, HGH, etc.

I thank my lucky stars that I took the opportunity to thoroughly explore the Bow backwaters, Greenway, Three Mills and the rest of the Lea Valley when I lived up by Blackhorse Road, Walthamstow back in 1999. When the weather was as good as it is at the moment, I would use a bit of flexi to slip out of the office at 16:00, take the Vic back home, get the bike out, tootle down the A503 where it and the North London railway line traverse the reservoirs, turn left before Tottenham Hale station and - bliss! Miles of traffic free cycling to enjoy.

People - I heartily endorse DG's exhortation to get out there and take it all in before it disappears forever!
