Fancy a walk along the canal (going thru the East End?)

 

Yes but my trouble is I work a fair distance from home. you might enjoy this - I hope to do it one day

 

 

http://2012games.newham.gov.uk/Whatss+On/R...Tour+Newham.htm

 

 

Take a glimpse into Newham's future with our weekly free guided tour. Climb aboard your tour bus and experience the borough's transformation up close. Move between the Cultural Quarter, the famous Green Street, and the thriving the Excel Centre, and get the best view of the Olympic Village from high up at Holden Point.

 

Newham is undergoing the most exciting social and environmental transformations the East End has seen. The aim is to restore it to its historical position as a centre for trade and commerce and to encourage more people to benefit from the social and leisure opportunities on offer. That's the vision. Come and see it for yourself.

 

 

 

Details:

 

The 3-hour tour is free and departs from East Ham Town Hall every Thursday at 10am.

 

 

 

Email the regeneration tour officer to book your place.

(Deep man-adapted caves in the hills used traditionally for storage of smuggled contraband goods and for hiding in :ph34r: . This one has been turned into a tourist attraction but there are many more hidden along the coastline)

(We celebrate November 5th in grand style, my family were intrumental in ressurecting the local tradition and my Uncle is 'Captain of the Fire')

(We pack an effigy representing hated public figures (local and global) with explosives each year and blow it to kingdom come. This was this year's)

 

And from my back garden you can fish here ..............

The town suffers from being very economically deprived but when I weigh up certain aspects, some shown and mentioned above, I feel I'm happier here than I would be in many other places in the UK.

Many of these photos can still inspire discussion, even wonder.

 

So I thought a revival on the Main board was overdue.

Taken 2 days ago with a Nikon D200, outside our home. The process of converting them from RAW to JPG to post here means some of the quality is lost;
