lovelondonscenes – 50 – High Tide, Chiswick Mall

My 50th lovelondonscenes post, and where better than one of my favourite bits of London? A place I’d love to live in if I could afford it! Chiswick Mall – on the river, just west of Hammersmith and prone to flooding at high tide. When I got there today on a bike ride at about 2.30pm, the water was nine inches deep on the street. Higher than usual.

And people were having fun. Back to childhood. Shoes and socks off…

One way of avoiding getting your feet wet!

Orderly queue: it is England after all…

  1. Neat shots…but … well I guess the high tide flooding is normal. ?
    Still frozen over here, a balmy -9c, but feels like -15c with the windchill!
