Beckton Is the smell permanent  

Hi I have just moved to the Riverside Development near the power station and can honestly say there is not a day where I don't get a wiff of what I can only describe as a stale fart. This could be due to the fact I am near to where the clean water passes back into the river. Will this be a permanent odour or are there plans to neutralise it?

Also what effect does this have on my lungs/ health?

Beckton Free kung fu lessons in beckton  

I'm looking for a venue/hall in Beckton that can let us use their facilities to give free kung fu classes to adults and young people.
I represent the British Kung Fu Association, which is a registered charity.
I have run classes in the area in the past, but rental charges of between 25-60 pph prevent us from giving to the community freely.

Everywhere I see people complaining that there is nothing to do in Beckton for young people. But the local halls prices prevent community classes from running.

If there is any representative of a facility that can help, please contact me via email  Mail-me 
Thank you
Colin

Beckton Beckton is what you make it.  

My wife and I moved to Beckton ober 10 years ago.
We both work in the city and moved due to the excellent transport links and the low cost property.
Having the dlr is great, as we can still get to work when the the strikes are on
Beckton does have its issues though.
Too many homes are now bought to let, many to the council who place unemployed families next to hard working people.
An increase in owner occupied houses would improve the community and a little bit of respect for neighbours would go along way

Beckton Nice, quiet place  

I've lived in Beckton for over a year now and don't mind it for now. If you do move here and don't have a car, try to move as close to a DLR station as possible (Gallions Reach, Cyprus, Beckton Park, Beckton) as you will find that you will need to travel for things like clothes shopping and days out etc, there's not a lot to do in Beckton.

HOWEVER, it's handy to have ASDA close, and a couple of retail parks if you want to get on a bus (it's quicker just to get on the tube to stratford though).

It feels safe in the day time, but crime does happen and I here sirens at least once every day going through the area. I've walked through Beckton late at night and it's OK- but muggings do happen so I would be careful and keep this to a minimum if you're by yourself.
Being in Beckton in the summer is lovely- New Beckton Park and Beckton District Park are great for sports, picnics, sunbathing etc. Really pretty surroundings. Oh, and it doesn't smell!

Hi all,

Was reading this with interest, considering buying a house on Winsor Terrace and would like to know how things are now, crime wise?

We would be reliant on the dlr and buses so would be walking up and down Winsor terrace a lot.

Thanks in advance

Beckton Bought here 2 years ago - no regrets!  

Hi I bought a 2 bed flat near Cyprus station about 2 years ago and its probably the best decision I ever made.

The area is so nice compared to other areas of London. Why would you want to buy an over-priced flat above a shop when you can get a 2 bed here for 160,000, garden and parking thrown in too. There are so many green spaces and parks for sport and the journey into central London is only half an hour.

With Crossrail coming in in a few years and cutting journey times by 10 minutes and Boris creating a 1 billion business park by the docks, house prices are going to soar in this area in the next few years.

Beckton I am buying a flat in Beckton...  

Hi, I am planning to buy a flat in Beckton because it's convenient to get to work in the city. I will be living on my own (27 yold female). I have been reading all the postings here and have a mix feelings about the place. Is it really safe to live? Also, I heard about the sewage treatment works release a bad smell and gets worse in summer. Is this really true? I have been to Beckton wice and could not notice any smell. There was weird smell on my first time but the second time i have not noticed any bad smell but the spring flowers. Please advise me if I am making a good investment. I don't want to regret after I buy.

Like any other place, there are nice places in Beckton and not so nice places. The "not nice places" are more due to anti social behaviour rather than ugly buildings or whatever. Whatever you do, avoid places like Winsor Terrace.

I am thinking about buying a property in Beckton as it much cheaper than anywhere else in London.I have heard about few problems in Beckton area about the smell and drainage problem.I have rented a room there about 2 months near Asda (nov-dec)I couln't smell anything. I went to shopping centre Gallions Reach on few occasions and I could feel a very bad smell there,also last weekend I went to a few shops next to Beckton station(where is Malatan ,Lituanica)there I could feel a very strange smell too.If anyone has any information/or anyone lives in Beckton for a long time please let me know.Many thanks.Kristina

Born and lived in east London most of my life. Newham is a great place to live, and Beckton being in newham is pretty cool too. Nice community, shops and good transport links. The only thing no one is mentioning which is the main reason I have never moved there is the unbelievable stench the sewage works throws up on a regular basis. It's eye wateringly horrendous and smothers the area in a suffocating turd blanket on a regular basis. You know what I mean becktonites. It's like a big secret until it hits and you see the faces of people wincing in agony and kids shouting 'mum it stinks!'. Then it goes and everyone acts like it didn't happen. Even though the poo particles are clustered in your naval cavities ensuring nothing smells good for the next 30mins or more. That said I'd rather live in the pongiest bits of east London than anywhere else. The people make up for any short-comings. Newham council please help the people of beckton breathe fresh air for more than 2 consecutive days.

You're posting made me alugh and is vaguely true. I;ve lived in Beckton (off tollgate road, near the parks towards Royla Albert DLR) and it does it's job. Yes, the sewage works do smell in summer (one pipe always gets blocked) but you cannot smell this from where I live, I have only ever smelt it when at Galleons Reach shopping centre and occassional at the Asda end too. As long as you live further towards Stansfeld Road end of Beckton the smell is fine. There is a great spirt where I live, and nice neighbours (although very few Brits) There is lots of open space in Beckton, and there are many great improvement to Newham thanks to the Olympics. I very rarely experience any anti-social behaviour, but there are Community Support Police Officers who patrol Beckton should you need assistance.
There are MUCH MUCH MUCH worse places you could live than Beckton, so dont be put off. Come and have a really good look around at the facilities, and different housing areas.
