Ecology Urban Wilderness

Wild Mitchell Street

A few years ago the nursery that was run out of a portacabin on Mitchell Street, wedged between the local energy centre and a football pitch, was closed. It had been sited on the grounds of the Finsbury Leisure Centre for over twenty years.

The plot was cleared of buildings and for a period before COVID the space was squatted. Those squatters have since moved on and now no-one goes onto the land. Walking past it the other day I noticed that a small gap had been opened up in the fence, so I went in to have a look.

If you click on the photo it launches a gallery view and if you leave it alone for a moment it loads the next picture.
