walthamstow stadium | the goldilocks triumvirate: too hot

We walked along Chingford Road and surveyed the frontage. Most of the elegant art-deco architecture was hidden by a monstrous multi-storey car-park carbuncle, disgustingly decorated with wrought iron wagon wheels. New fencing blocked the view past this ugly extension, but we saw the feet of one guard disappearing up one of the car-park ramps; even more worrying was the loose Alsatian dog wondering around the security checkpoint.

A guard we could deal with. A loose dog we were less happy about. We were unhappy to the point of calling the whole thing off.
