lovelondonscenes 164 – Kings Cross and Camden by the Regent’s Canal

Today was autumn’s collision with winter, as the clocks went back. But it was also a lovely sunny day and not too cold. A respite after rain, rain, rain. I took the Piccadilly Line up to King’s Cross and walked from there back to Paddington along the Regent’s Canal. The walk, which is not that long, takes you through Camden, Regent’s Park and Maida Vale, including Little Venice. The photos here, turned into black and white, are from the stretch between King’s Cross and Camden, starting around Coal Drop Yard.  A lot of it is relatively new development – this is an area transformed. A place you want to come to rather than avoid. Urban beauty.

    It’s a great walk, and I’m loving the monochrome look. It’s an excellent transformation of a once-dead neighbourhood, as you say. Sometimes the planners and architects get this wrong (like the soulless ‘Embassy Quarter’ in Battersea, for example), but I think they’ve done a very good job here. Can’t imagine what those gasholder flats run to…..

    Yes I thought those gasholder flats looked cool.
