Walking the Greenway

Waste is a feature of the Greenway, that straight(ish) raised 4½-mile path between Beckton and Hackney. It runs above a major sewer which carries much of London’s waste to the sewage works at Beckton; points of interest include the very impressive Abbey Mills pumping station and an artificial hill that started out as a toxic refuse heap (the ironically named Beckton Alps, which was a dry ski-slope in the Nineties although the name apparently pre-dates this) as well as the Olympic Park.
