The Greenway

Six level miles of car free travel. This is what's promised by the path laid atop a long green mound that covers Bazalgette's famous sewer pipe.

The Greenway stretches from Victoria Park, crossing the River Lea and the [Bow Back Rivers]? before being interrupted (momentarily) by a railway line near Stratford. From there it rockets on past the Victorian-gothic majesty of Abbey Mills pumping station and the massive [East London Cemetery]?. Then into Plaistow and on, ever Eastward, into Beckton.

The only hazards on this remarkable urban route are the carcases of burned-out, stolen motorbikes and scooters, the inevitable leavings of dog walkers, and the occasional whiff rising from the rivers at low tide.
