A walk from Little Venice to Camden Lock London 7th October 2011
I got the train and tube to Warwick street Tube Station near Paddington and a short walk saw me at Little Venice.
|I now know this to be the start of The Grand Union Canal|
|Strange House boats, wondered what it like to live on one of these??|
|If you had to name a boast "Iron Maiden" seems as good as any!!|
|Some Large Houses In The Regents Park area that back onto the Canal.|
Three of the crew were killed, the bridge destroyed and windows were blown out a mile away. It also destroyed the house of Alma-Tadema who almost certainly owed his life to a prior engagement.
The canal was closed for four days. Another of the barges was also damaged and sank.
|Grooves from towing ropes that were attached to the barges horses.|
Then we were passing through the middle of London Zoo in Regents Park.....
Walking past The Zoo....
|Feng Shang Floating Chinese Restaurant|
Then I came up to Pirate Castle where they do cheap kayaking and other activities..looked cool!
It was only a short walk after this until I reached the vibrant Camden Lock and the markets.
|Could have spent hours in here, if only I had the money!!|
There was a food market with food from all corners of the world, I had free samples of Jamaican Jerk Chicken and Chinese fried chicken.The Jerk Chicken was lovely, must dig out a recipe for it.
|This shop was selling old bike starting from £150!!!|
|Cyberdog Store,you gotta look in here.Trance clothing and in the basement was a torture dungeon!!(full of sex toys and gimp masks! lol|
|And finished off with a pint of lager and a packet of crisps!|
