Many of you said you liked the photo in my previous post of the Regents Canal in Islington, North London.
London's canals are quite special - you can take a few steps down from a busy London street, and find yourself in this world:
People work here
and live here
a lot of cyclists use the tow paths on their daily commute
whizzing past the water and the graffiti....
The Regents Canal in North East London was completed in 1820, to join up with the Grand Junction canal which goes through North West London and Paddington. Together they are the London section of the Grand Union canal - so its possible to travel from the midlands right through London and out to the West, entirely by narrow-boat.
One of the most famous bits of canal is Camden Lock which must be one of the busiest too, especially at the weekends when the Markets are open.
I more often find myself in Islington towards the end of the day - waiting to meet a friend for a date at Sadlers Wells theatre and marvelling at the reflections and the late sunshine on the water.
