"Check out Leyton now, it has been revamped rather tastefully following funding generated from the Olympic revenue. They have recreated ta colourful 'Kentish Town - Leverton St' look with each facade having bright frontages to them and hand painted signage to shops. Also, the generall pedestrian routes and accessibility issues into the main Leyton Mils Retail Park
has also been 'improved'- although I don't know how successful this has been.
I would on the whole give this redevelopment a thumbs up, as it feels like a fresh and vibrant area, and there has been more independent shops opening up which is always good. What it is missing though is a good pub on the high st. If this happens then Leyton could very well pick up quickly - as the Red Lion in Leytonstone has already started a buzz."
