Lea Bridge - a Lovely Place to Live In
Lea Bridge is a region in the North East London area of Hackney. It is bordered to the north by Upper Clapton, to the south by Lower Clapton and the east the River Lee. Across the bridge on the river is the area of Leyton in the region of Waltham Forest. This bridge was constructed in 1745 to replace a ferry. The main industry was water related due to the river, with waterwheel, water pumping stations and mills. The area over the bridge leads to Lee Valley Park, a conservation area that spans some 26 miles of stunning open countryside and landscape. The bridge and road share the same name and is called Lea Bridge Road, and head towards Hackney and Waltham Forest. The postcode area is E10. The area is dominated by some splendid mansions and lovely residential areas. There are a number of bus routes that pass along Lea Bridge road and a cycle route. The railway station was opened in 1840, but it has in recent years not been so popular, as other better transport links have emerged, so it has been closed.
