Whitton Avenue East, seen from Whitton Drive

Ten years ago today I created the 194th post for Greenford 365. To mark the blog’s anniversary I will attempt to post a photo every day throughout 2022.

Classic English suburbia. With the exception of the street trees, now mature, from a distance it would seem that this view has hardly changed since these houses were built before WW2. Look more closely and you’ll see fronts altered and scaffolding revealing structural alterations, probably a loft extension.

    Thank you for reminding us of how lovely
    Greenford is, and the original beauty of the place. I have lived and worked here, for many years, indeed it is my home town. The very name ‘Greenford’ reflects how even more green it was before the concrete jungle set in, but nice to see the snapshots of time as depicted in your photography. An added bonus is how accessible our beautiful capital London is from here – Thank you

    • Thank you for your comment and I’m glad you like the photos. Unfortunately the encroachment of concrete is a sign of the apathy that Greenford is known for. I was told by councillors that HS2 believed that there would be no opposition at all to its passing through the area because residents rarely speak out if they are concerned. We’ve ended up with the Greenford we deserve which is a lot less lovely that it was when I began this project. It’s not too late but we do have to bolder and more proactive if we want to retain what is good about it.

Let me know what you think...
