Ten years ago today I created the 255th post for Greenford 365. To mark the blog’s anniversary I will attempt to post a photo every day throughout 2022.

Pedestrians are allowed to walk across the bridge near Greenford Station after watching the hearse carrying the coffin of Queen Elizabeth the Second pass through Greenford along the A40, on its way from RAF Northolt to Buckingham Palace. There was a police presence along the route (Metropolitan and BTP) ensuring a clear passage for it and stewards prevented access to pedestrian subways and bridges. Information as to which stations were closest to RAF Northolt, for those who wished to see the arrival of the coffin, had been posted at Greenford Station earlier that day. People stood along the route, on grass verges and in front of their homes, some holding flags. It was gloomy and wet but the interior of the hearse was lit so that the coffin, covered in the Royal Standard, could be seen clearly.
