Must say I was very surprised, as a first time visitor, at how run down Newhaven was when I was there April/May time this year.

Wanstead: soon to be Tesco....
Leytonstone: empty
South Woodford: a large Polish supermarket.

Each interesting in their own way. Massive opposition to the Wanstead Tesco.

I am interested in how people are using this thread, a lot of possibilities.
