The Town Square, Walthamstow. It currently contains a lamentably inadequate eight cycle stands for those wishing to use The Mall shopping complex. Or you could go by car and
take advantage of the hundreds of car parking spaces. Your car won't get wet if it rains, but your bike will. Such are the real-world priorities of a Council which boasts of its intention to become the Greenest borough in London.

Of those eight stands, one has now had the remains of a vandalised and abandoned bike attached to it for OVER SIX MONTHS.

And one of the others (below) is no longer rooted in the ground but has both legs of the stand loose. A bike thief's dream.
