Over the past three years, Kath and I and our friends Jon and Maggie have been walking the length of the Thames. Today, in glorious winter sunshine, we filled a little London gap, which just leaves a stretch in Oxfordshire to complete some time this Spring. As the crow flies Greenwich to London Bridge is 4 miles. Once you take the bends of the Thames into account it is 6-7. Canary Wharf and then Tower Bridge and the City are inevitably the photographic highlights, but from different perspectives than usual. Here are a few shots, starting with a view of the Shard from platform 1 of London Bridge railway station, waiting for the train to Greenwich.
Assuming this church is called St Mary’s as it’s on Saint Marychurch Street, in Rotherhithe.
This statue, in Bermondsey, is of Alfred Salter. He and his wife Ada were pioneering socialists around the turn of of the 19th/20th centuries, politically and in the field of medicine, in south-east London. The cat, above, belonged to them, I think. There is a statue of Ada too, but I took this shot thinking it was David Hockney!
The Shard, imprisoned.
