The King's Troops regularly take their horses out for a stroll along the streets around the Royal Artillery Barracks and always leave heaps and heaps of horse waste littering the roads. I regularly cycle in the area and it is very difficult to avoid hitting the heaps without risking my safety, as the streets are quite narrow and I wouldn't want to suddenly swerve in front of a car overtaking me. This location is just one example, there are heaps along most streets in the entire neighbourhood. Flattened out stains from weeks ago are still visible as the streets have obviously not been cleaned regularly enough.
