Claremont Road, London, 1995

from the series 'No M11'

Autumn 2015

In the summer of 1994 in Leyton, East London. I heard about a road protest that was happening just down the road from where I was living. Apparently there was going to be a large motorway being built that necessitated the demolition of many houses including Claremont Road, which became the focal point of the movement. All but one of the original residents had sold out to the authorities, and the remaining empty houses became a thriving eco-community for the protesters who did all they could to stop the link road being built. It all came to an end in November 1995, when eventually the bailiff, supported by riot police sealed the road off and removed them.
