Earl of Devon public house and playground in Devons Road
A rear view of the Earl of Devon public house and neighbouring buildings at 205-213 Devons Road, Bromley-by-Bow, taken from the playground in Furze Green park. Swings for infants and older children, a slide and a metal climbing frame can all be seen on the grassy lawn. Public seating has been provided along the pathways in front of shrubs and flower borders. Behind corrugated metal hoardings are the derelict buildings at numbers 205-211 Devons Road, including the former Tryphena Mission on the right (numbers 205-207) where meals were provided for the poor and destitute. Windows are smashed or missing altogether. On the far left, boarded-up terraced housing in Furze Street awaits demolition. Behind, the spire of the Church of the Holy Name and Our Lady of the Sacred Heart in Bow Common Lane can be seen. Both the church and the Earl of Devon pub still stand today, although the pub has been converted into flats. The other buildings no longer exist; they were demolished and the land incorporated into an extension of Furze Green park.The children's playground has also been re-sited within the park.
