25 January (Part 2) - Thin timber strips and trips and trams in Abbey Wood

Fence Fence Knee HillThe view from the lower end of Knee Hill has changed dramatically.

Two thirds of the old wire fence remains and renovated to some extent but for the other third the former Harrow Inn site has reverted to relying on the old street furniture style barrier. Easily hopped if anyone has a mind to

However it might not be necessary to clamber over the ironmongery for long as the high and insubstantial fence has required bracing and the timber can best be described as flimsy. Some of the fence panels are secured by lumps of concrete too. Mind your toes!

I hope I am wrong but I doubt the Harrow Inn fence version 4 will stand the test of time, but it has certainly opened the view. Not that Abbey Wood currently provides a good one.

If it benefits from the TfL funding around the station perhaps - so not much - and no new Concert & Dance Hall planned! (Enlarge Photo 3.)
