York Square

It’s a while since I’ve been on my Sunday morning run (well, it’s no longer really a run, but we like to call it that), which always begins in York Square, a neat East End Square, built by the Mercers Company in the mid-1820s and taken over by the GLC in 1973, all of a piece apart from a certain amount of rebuilding after the war.   There’s a campaign to save the Queen’s Head as a community resource and not be sold off as so many of the other local pubs have been.   And they’re doing up Flamborough Walk, one of those secret, gated snickets which are such a feature of the East End.
