Isleworth village from the other side of the Thames, near Kew. Today was a beautiful sunny day. I cycled down to Richmond Lock, turned east and rode all the way to Putney Bridge and then made my way home on the other side of the river. Done it so many times, but always a joy. Each time the river is in a different state of its tidal flow, the weather can be anything. The river can be full of rowers or empty – today there were a lot. Likewise the riverside pubs – heaving today.
But this is Isleworth. Not a well known bit of London, and largely a bit nondescript. But lovely down by the river.
The dark building, just left of centre, is a favourite pub, The London Apprentice.
On the side of the river where I was taking these photos, there’s a channel. Always a bit swampy. By our standards. Not quite Florida. No alligators! Plenty of rats at sundown though….
