Old Farm

3 June (Part 2) - Zero footfall

Wilton Road MarketThe damage done to Wilton Road by Crossrail construction has been immense, the dirty and dusty part of the construction phase has long gone but access to the station remains difficult and a surprising number of people prefer to get the bus to Woolwich.

The road is generally quiet apart from the undesirables who gather outside the betting shop and occasionally it appears to be almost totally deserted. Sometimes it is deserted as the associated photograph almost confirms. There was just one man smoking outside Paddypower at 10:09 this Saturday morning. The £300,000 regeneration project has so far attracted very little additional trade.

I knew the local traders were planning a market for later in the year but a different one has crept up on me unannounced.

It’s being run by a volunteer group from, I think, the village hall Community Group. Click the image to read more.

The amount of litter that Bexley Council leaves in the gutter does nothing to make the place look more attractive either.
