This little loading bay, at the rear of a shop in Greenford Broadway, is the last one left. The other premises alongside it must have had similar bays but they have been demolished and the buildings extended, to make full use of their plots. I don’t think this will survive for much longer but while it lasts neglect has made it the ideal home for ferns and moss that like the lime based mortar between the bricks.
