Title: East London
Post by: thepman on November 11, 2020, 09:30:35 AM
Yo, i'm currently locking down in East London (I actually live in Manchester but staying with my girlfriend who lives down here for the month) and i'm after a chill ledge spot near Bethnal Green/Haggerston/London Fields area - any recommendations? Also any bank spots would be great too. I lived in London for 4 years during the mid 2010s so though I have some spot knowledge it's likely out of date...

Mile End is close to yours and it has a very good ledge and other fun bits.

I love Mile End, but thought it might be closed like other skateparks because of the lockdown...

I actually moved to Clapton so this is kind of my local now - I'm pretty shite so if I turn up and spend an hour trying to land a flatground heelflip am I going to piss everyone off?

dalston junction station theres some ledges outside there, theres loads of stuff near liverpool street/spitalfields market.

east london is pretty good for ledges. there used to be a series of skate edits called 'boroughs' on sidewalk, i think you can still find it online. the crew that make that skate pretty much eevry spot in east london.
