Bethnal Green is quite gentrified in patches these days. Whereabouts are you from @SF2Turbo? I grew up in Sidney Street, just up the road!

Yeah i'm very familiar with Sidney street and the surrounding areas i have grown up in Tower Hamlets, Initially i used to live in poplar, than in my late teens i moved to Bethnal Green. with my family where i lived for 8 years of my life. I have since moved to outer London, but Bethnal Green and Poplar will always be home to me no matter where i move, too many memories.

I can still get to Bethnal Green by car within 20 mins, which is what i did today. I left my car parked next to Bethnal Green station and took the tube.

Fun place to be these days. Also transport connection to central London is convenient as can be. I see alot of people wearing selvedge denim in that area. Never directly talk to anyone about selvedge denim they might think i'm weird which i kind of am:rolleyes:

What a lovely place to live! it's as flat as a pancake.

It looks like folks houses are really well maintained... over here, where you used to be able to employ a 'tradesperson' to restore your ornamental woodwork, you now have to employ an 'artisan' at 3x the cost so in contrast, even the swanky houses are getting a bit crumbly.

I think the little blue/green wooded joint is my favourite.

Thanks, yeah it’s an alright place to live. it’s pretty flat but as soon as you get to the outskirts of town it gets a little hilly.

A very quit and safe place so good for starting a family. That’s why I moved back. Some of the wooden houses ornamentation is really something else. Yellow house in pic 4 is one of them. We own a one story brick house from the 60’s thankfully, so no restorations needed of that sort.

^ That’s my favourite too.

Nice photos @Spiraltoy, quite an impressive town for such a small population.

Arbroath is an old town and has a prominent place in Scottish history. One notable event is the Declaration of Arbroath written in 1320.

The Declaration of Arbroath (sometimes called the Declaration of Independence) was Scotland's response to the Pope’s excommunication of all Scots - at the urgings of Edward II, who had recently had his arse handed to him (i.e. suffered a severe and embarrassing ignominy) at Bannockburn. 

It is one of the great icons of Scotland and is in the form of a letter (in Latin) to the Pope from eight earls and 31 barons of Scotland asking him in rousing terms to acknowledge Scotland as an independent nation and to reject the claims of the English king. 

The Declaration was ahead of its time as it sets out that the king (previously regarded as appointed by God) could be driven out if he did not uphold the freedom of the country. It later became a model for the American Declaration of Independence.

So we have a statue to commemorate this - with 2020 being the 700 year anniversary

^ And here was I thinking that one would even be too low for you ;)

 

@Duke Mantee It certainly is. Or the whole area called Hegau. Close to the Lake of Constance and the Swiss border. I moved here nearly 8 years ago and have never regretted my decision.
I wouldn't mind visting Arbroath though :D

Just back from shopping getting out of Bethnal Green station. And pics of Bethnal Green area. Very trendy these days but growing up it used to be a very dangerous place still is to an extent.
