Family friendly

Its loud at night time, adult and teenagers messing around on the park. Parks are very well kept and convenient for kids to play in during the day, wouldn’t suggest the kids being out too late as adults then take over.

Nice area I feel lucky to live here

Love living around here perfect place to walk the dog along the river I like the design of the building as it’s all wood and I like that effect, maintenance on the building itself is really good so i cant fault that, nice neighbours and my rent is very cheap as I share anyway so I cant complain about prices, the only downside is that somebody underneath is drug dealing but they’re still lovely people, the shops are convenient to get to so i can get everything i need from there.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Not much crime as far as I’m aware

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

The links for cycling are really good. Lot of beautiful places around and the nearby park is good for the summer. It also seems very friendly and close to transport links so useful to get to central and very quite.

I like this area because it is nice, quick walk to the park but it is long walk to the school, river and marshes are good.

Nice area, transport could be improved

Verified Resident

The flat sizes are adequate for residents, two and 3 bedroom plans. New build. The main issue is lack of parking, there is a carpark downstairs however you have to pay for it. There is a management company who deal with repairs etc.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

The area has a canal riverside, lots of open spaces. Marshes etc. Transport links can be difficult.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

We were pretty informed before, and also did our research

Transport links in London are good. For motorists living here could be difficult. Parking is not ideal, spaces are not always available. Way too many commercial vehicles. One space per household. Not ideal.

Loads of parks, ideal for families. This particulsr area is quite quiet and good. Safe

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

The parking arrangements.
The glotters clog, poor maintenance.

Quiet, safe

Transport is good but I use cycle anyway so it’s good if you need to use it, I wouldn’t say it’s dangerous but we lie right next to a park so you expect something to happen anyway, the shops aren’t far away, the coop is up the road but theres nowhere to do clothes shopping without having to travel or order online, the canal is nice
