Before Overground – London Fields

A Station With an Excellent Bakery/Cafe – Rating 3/10

London Fields station is another station on the Lea Valley Lines with no decent access.


As I arrived a Japanese lady was struggling down the stairs with her three-year-old, a buggy and a scooter.

The reason she was coming was to visit the E5 bakehouse and cafe. It was so full, that I couldn’t get my intended cup of tea.

As you can see from the pictures, Network Rail have done a superb job in creating a series of small workshops in the railway arches.

It’s just a pity, that the access at the station wasn’t fixed at the same time.

As the station has only had a frequent service since 2005. was this one of those stations that British Rail hoped would quietly die?
