River of dreams
Have you seen Millfields lately? The hoardings by the River Lea Navigation have come down and, wow, what a difference it makes to the place. A nice bit of tarmacking (is that a verb? Answer: no), but it does the job opening up the view. And when the borders are planted with lovely hardy shrubs, bikers won't be able to churn up the beds with their tyres. Tsk, etc.
But it certainly makes cycling beneath the Lea Bridge more of a breeze than it was. No more being thrown off by that notorious cobbly slope.
Once the riverside sundecking, as per the architect's plans, gets put in, the new Chatsworth Road market gets going and the Clapton Tram Sheds get a makeover, Millfields could be the "new London Fields".
A boy can dream.
PS: for all Millfields fans, there's a new blog on the block. Do follow: http://millfieldspark.blogspot.com
