|My father's watercolour of the gasometer in Redbridge
|Looking west from St Pancras
|A liveaboard? Hard to imagine, but who knows?
|These two were definitely home to their owners
|And more boats
|I loved this old mooring ring
|Here they are behind the Coal Drops Yard where we had lunch
|And again as we entered the shopping centre
|A view from the towpath that we reached from Coal Drops yard
|And lastly, the park in a gasometer frame,
which is there for everyone to enjoy
|The gorgeous old St Pancras Waterpoint
After lunch, we took a look at King's Cross Station, which is one of my favourites. We didn't get to see the Harry Potter Platform, unfortunately, although I believe the fact it was at King's Cross was a mistake on JK Rowling's part. Apparently, she was thinking of Euston Station a bit further along the road. What's in a name, eh?
Our final stop of the day was at the London Canal Museum on Battlebridge Basin. I think it deserves a post all of its own, so I'll finish here with a photo of the residential moorings in the Basin. If I ever had the chance to live in London again, this is where I'd want to be. What a lovely, tranquil spot it was and right in the heart of the city too. Heaven on a boat!
