Wapping

We went down to Wapping, which I have sometimes thought a bit gloomy, with high Victorian wharves closed in on narrow cobbled streets. But this afternoon, with the bright mid-February sun, it felt surprisingly busy, maybe because all the city workers were out running.

There is nice Victorian brickwork on The Three Suns:-

Canary Wharf looms extraterrestrially downriver:-

Still some good detailing on the wharves:-

Then Wapping Pierhead:-

And the old Charity School:-

    In between lockdowns I was able to take two small groups for tours of Wapping and its Wharfs (with a professional Blue Badge Guide of course) and we even had lunch at The Prospect of Whitby – it felt just like the old days!
