Skateboard Ramp in a Squat, 1980s

The new skateboard ramps at Clissold Park aren’t the first ones in the borough. A previous ramp was installed by squatters in Lee House squat in Rectory Road over 20 years ago.

A useful community facility – in a squat? Obviously the Council wasn’t having that.

These scans all ripped off from the excellent 80s London Squatters group on Facebook.
