Myddleton Road is nice, but it could be much much better.
In fact I think the "improvement" has stalled somewhat over the last 2-3 years.
There are too many parked cars on it, too much through traffic, the pavements are cracked/dirty, there's too much rubbish/litter, too many empty shops and shop fronts that look, well, a bit "scruffy"
Why can't it be more like Francis Road in Leyton?

The weird thing is, one of the Directors of the company that is behind the current (very unpopular) plans to change the former "The Step" ...lives on Francis Road!
I once liked Middleton road. I now don't walk along it from Whittington Road. I find the crowds that block the pavement outside the Bakery a real nuisance. They block the pavement meaning I have to walk in the road with the pram because no one moves. This was the same all through lock down. The road improves at the junction of Marlborough Road just past the food shop and the cafes at that end. Other than these places I avoid Middleton road. Shame because it could be nice. We need another Step!
i agree about the people hanging around at the bakery
and this is the problem. now we have a street that some people don't even want to walk down.
