The page on the edge – links, miscellany

Some things related to from the edge, more or less….in no particular order. This is a work in progress  – suggestions gratefully received 


The Marshman Chronicles – The Hackney Marshman’s meanderings – pylons and robot rabbits feature. This blog evolved into Gareth Rees’ highly recommended  book Marshland: Dreams and Nightmares on the Edge of London.

Walthamstow Diary – Tales from E17

The Highams Park Plan – Power to the people…

Save Lea Marshes

The little free library project UK – Art, Literacy, Community engagement

Mike’s records – Wood Street or maybe I should keep this one secret?

Clay Pipe Music – East London based label. Noted for beautifully presented releases, and particularly A Dream Life of Hackney Marshes by Jetsam and Gareth Rees.

Sam Mumford – Walthamstow based artist – debut ep has 5 fragile tracks assembled like a house of cards, paper thin, maybe but built on solid foundations

Sounds from Birch Well An Epping Forest dreamscape from Clientele member Alasdair Maclean (thanks to Julian Francis Lawton for this one!)

The Battle of Epping Forest, by Genesis – well, why not. Not the mystical medieval landscape you might expect, but a tale of rival East End gangs who take their dispute into the woods.
