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."

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
