Regent's Canal

Bethnal Green & Hackney, London. Thu 11th Apr 2019



 I took the Overground to Cambridge Heath station on Cambridge Heat Road

 and walked a short distance down Hackney Rd

 to the Oval

 St Casimir's Lithuanian Church was built in 1912. Services are still mainly in Lithuanian. At right is Grove Passage

 The Oval

 The space in the centre used to be a car park

 

 

 

 

 

 Corbridge Crescent leads past Containerville on a part of the gas works site to run beside the Regent's Canal

 

 This building used to be offices for Empress Coaches. It is all that remains of the original 1836 development of The Oval.
 The yard behind is currently being redeveloped and will dwarf these buildings.

 The buildings on the other side of the canal are in Hackney

 Corbridge Crescent

 

 

 

 The yard behind the wall at right where Empress Coaches were parked is currently being built with 56 residential units and ground floor commercial space

 Grove Passage and Corbridge Crescent under the railway bridge

 

 Grove Passage

 Hare St and Grove Passage

 The Hare, Cambridge Heath Road

 Just in case you are in any doubt, this is The Hare

 

 Victoria Buildings, Mare St

 

 Andrews Rd

 

 

 

 

 The Great Eastern Railway originally had two tracks in 1872, but a couple of fast lines were added in 1894 (closer to camera)

 Towpath opposite Vyner St

 Under Mare St

 

 From Andrews Rd, close to Broadway Market
