Banjos

A Banjo: a round ended pedestrian cul-de-sac native to the Becontree Estate. In plan, from above, they look like the musical instrument. One of the only places in the world where these precursors to the modern day cul-de-sac are referred to as a banjo. A remnant of the east-end music hall culture in Becontree.
