Photographer's Note

The Lea Valley is a place that you will become very familiar with in the year 2012. Though at the moment parts of it look decidedly run down - a post industrial rubbish dump.

This picture is another view of the Pura food processing plant in Docklands, London. The plant itself is on the horizon behind the Docklands Light Railway train which is passing by. Behind me there is a vehicle testing station where cars get their annual certificate of safety. I guess that any tyres which are not road worthy are just thrown over the wall and collect at the side of the river - as can be seen here - there are also a large number of tyres piled up along the walkway where I am standing.

This area is due for some redevelopment over the next 10 years. Many of the industrial buildings have been vacated. This location is perhaps 1-2 miles from the Olympic village which is being constructed and less than 1 mile from Canary Wharf (upmarket commercial offices). It also has very good transport links - so start saving your money if you want to afford a flat in this area.
