Property developers must despair knowing that great big pieces of land such as this one are out of their reach. This is typical of the breathing spaces created for benefit of local residents by Ealing Council, although I’m sure that the developers of the 1930’s would have built here as well if they had been allowed to. They are reached by passages between houses, often through an unprepossessing entrance, but once you are there what a sight it is, in this case with a huge willow tree in one corner. I was surprised that hardly anyone was there today as the weather was so hot. The council signs often give their history and that of the surrounding area.
