In my recent peregrinations round Hackney, I have grown increasingly to like London Fields, the curiously shapeless and essentially nondescript patch of grass and trees north of Broadway Market, which people crisscross on their way to do their Saturday shopping and to the lido at the north. It’s got a long history as an area of common ground where drovers would allow cattle to graze before taking them to slaughter in London. It’s surrounded by good and interesting houses. This is Navarino Road:-

Just to write how much I enjoy reading your blog. It was recommended on a recent writing course I went on. London Fields happens to be a new favourite place of mine too, along with nearby Broadway Market.
Glad to hear it, if slightly bemused that it’s made it onto a writing course….Charles
