English Heritage: Old Oak Common: The Calm before the Storm (Après Boris le déluge)


"The development of the Old Oak Common area in the nineteenth century was dominated by a un-coordinated succession of linear routes driven through an agrarian landscape." [There were farms.]

"... The decline of heavy industry and changes to the rail network have left parts of the study area with the appearance of an exposed or semi-derelict post-industrial landscape." [It's a dump.]

"... Recent developments around North Acton Station complete the picture, hinting at new land uses including housing, retail and offices." [North Acton has been rebuilt as a dump.]
