ORBIT ABLAZE AND AQUATICS CENTRE (STRATFORD) 2014
Orbit preparing for take-off from the Queen Elizabeth park (formerly the Olympic Park) in Stratford east London. Stratford and the borough it resides (Newham) is one of the poorer boroughs of London but there is considerable regeneration taking place with new apartment blocks sprouting up though whether these will include any social Housing for the poorer population living here remains to be seen. Much of the newer properties here and across swathes of London are well out of reach of ordinary very hard working people with prices starting at 200,000 for a two bedroom flat!
