London Walk About

Seemingly one of the first mostly sunny days of the year, also by far the windiest day too! Only a smatter of rain fell too, compared to the bucket loads we seem to get every other day, this put Tom and I in higher spirits! The first interesting thing we found was the London Hydraulic Power Company’. It’s former use was to install a hydraulic power network of high pressure cast iron water mains. It closed in 1977 and is now used as a restuarant and arts centre.

Sand exsists on the Thames shore?

After going down a platform that we technically shouldn’t have been on (when has that stopped us before!) we found a curious red crane attached to the side of the building that was labelled ‘A & B King Henry’s Wharves C & D’.

I was challenged by my girlfriend, Leanne, to take a photo of something green. So here is that photo!

This was a strange one. This was attached to the building offscreen to the left. From what I could work out, each level was the persons ‘terrace’ or ‘garden area’, very strange! I wouldn’t be a fan of the structure to actually use it (if that is what it’s used for) but it’s an interesting structure for a photo!

The Blue Bridge. Tom has a lot more information in his post on this bridge – here. We were standing in the centre when it started beeping at us so we made a hasty retreat and started snapping away!
