The above photograph by Alan Simpson has already received a few comments. Do you have photographs, stories or poems about your memories of Leytonstone you would like to contribute?
Comment1: This is where the Transition community garden is now (Harold Road by the footbridge beyond the new games area)! You can still see the top of the wall on the left and the bridge is still there – just filled in.
Comment2: You need to visualise this cutting choked with stationary traffic four hours a day to get the effect. Most of the traffic that now zips through on the motorway used to struggle down this route. Building the road must have made the local air much cleaner.
Here is a more recent photograph of the community garden launch, September 2012. It would be great to receive memories of it’s development over the last year.
