New Square for South Chingford

Albert Crescent was officially inaugurated by Waltham Forest Council earlier today. The new square in the heart of South Chingford’s town center will host markets and serve as a communal hub for locals to meet and chat on the way to the shops. Together we restored two impressive art deco parades, fixed to historic clock and barometer, fitted new shopfronts, re-layed the pavements, planted new trees, installed new benches and lights and arranged a collection native songbirds cast in iron along the parapets. The opening event was hiving with people enjoying the first warm day this year.
