Lee Navigation scenes
I recently took a walk along the Lee Navigation in North East London. This part river/part canal route extends from the Thames to Hertford, a distance of over 27 miles and opened to commercial craft in the 1770’s.
Despite the day being wet, the rain cleared up in the late afternoon and a glorious sky made for some nice photo opportunities.
Some may argue re the last covered through wharf on London’s man-made waterway system, however the one at Brentford is technically not on a through route. Sutton’s Wharf in East London was London’s other last surviving example – sadly demolished a few years ago to make way for new flats.
