Lea Tow Path closed   
Extraordinarily just a few days before the towpath is due to be shut for the Olympics, Hackney Marshes was shut for an event organised by a pop music broadcaster called Radio 1, part of the BBC system. This meant the closure of the towpath south of Lea Bridge Road from June 22 to June 25, 2012. It's hardly worth re-opening it since it is going to be shut again on July 3, 2012!
