Limehouse Cut

I walked for a change up the Limehouse Cut, the stretch of water which was cut between the Thames and the River Lea, following an Act of Parliament in June 1767.   Much of it is nondescript, semi-industrial wasteland, now being developed for new housing (it is hard to believe that we have a housing crisis when you see the scale and extent of new housing development in Bromley-by-Bow).

This is where the Cut begins:-

Past The Mission:-

Past one of the last remaining undeveloped warehouses:-

Up the Cut:-

To Bow Lock:-

The gasworks:-

And the railway bridge:-

I caught the tube back from Bromley-by-Bow:-
