is almost precisely six months since Peabody Housing Association said it was
going to break the Green Chain Walk which runs right across the boroughs of
Bromley and Bexley from Crystal Palace to Lesnes Abbey and the Thames. A branch runs to the Thames
Barrier in Greenwich.
The Peabody announcement said they were going to renovate the path where it runs across their domain in three sections, the first being that between Yarnton Way and Southmere Lake, about 300 metres in all.
The path was officially closed on 16th February although it remained accessible for a few days beyond that date. Reopening was scheduled for 29th May.
This is how it looked yesterday, a very long way from being completed.
