Last Week …

September 29, 2014

Last week I went to London for the day. My first stop was Paddington from where I walked to Little Venice. Such a short way from one of the busiest stations in London is a little space of quiet and calm.  I don’t suppose it was  like always like this.  The junction between the Grand Union and the Regent Canal completed in 1820 and provided an important industrial  link between Birmingham and London in the the pre-railway era.

Now, it not so busy, the barges and horse gone leaving the only pedestrians and cyclists along the towpath. While its is mooring place for the narrow boats that come and go there a also a vibrant community of permanent homes.
