walking east london greenway — ‘twixt plaistow and stratford

one of the great pleasures of living in london is walking.the city is criss-crossed with urban pathways through the remnants of an earlier industrial age, through inner-city decline, through pre-railway and motor vehicle waterways.

with the increased popularity of cycling, bith mechanical and electrically assisted, the casual pedestrian like me is gradually being edged out by manic joggers, lycra fash cyclists, speeding electro-scooters, and terrifying phat-wheeled mad-max reminiscent battery cycles.
