Save Leyton Marshes
This is an image taken from a walk, together with 'those guys', we have been 'beating the bounds' with willow sticks. The picture here shows activists who defend the marshes of the River Lea valley as a common land, based on ancient rights, which get remembered once a year by walking along the boundaries of the common land.
Those guys are actually "The New Lammas Lands Defence Committee is based in Leyton, in the north-east of London. It exists to defend and preserve the ancient Lammas Lands of Leyton as public open space, free from enclosure, encroachment, and inappropriate use." http://www.lammaslands.org.uk/
At the time of the olympics their campaign has added urgency since the games appear to infringe heavily on the commons with a basket ball training faciity.
We shared a wonderful Sunday on the marshes. Congratulations and Good Luck http://saveleytonmarsh.wordpress.com/
