TQ3382 : Shoreditch: East end of Old Street and Shoreditch Town Hall

taken 8 years ago, near to Shoreditch, Islington, Great Britain

Shoreditch:  East end of Old Street and Shoreditch Town Hall
Shoreditch: East end of Old Street and Shoreditch Town Hall
Taken looking west from Shoreditch High Street, we see the bridge carrying the refurbished railway which is to open this May as part of the East London Extension line. The North London Railway Shoreditch station was here from 1865 when the line opened, but after war damage it closed in 1941 and never re-opened. Behind is seen the splendid Shoreditch Town Hall: This is presumably now the property of Hackney Borough Council, and not surprisingly they do not have enough money to refurbish it; it is sad to see fine buildings like this falling into decay, while millions are being spent elsewhere on so-called 'prestige' projects, such as The Shard at London Bridge.
