This is fantastic.

Thank you. That is brilliant. And knowing now which bits succeeded and which bits failed and how busy and popular all those places are today.

I probably first walked down the South Bank in the mid-90s and it’s been fascinating to see how it’s changed since. And how it hasn’t. Is the Coin St cat park really that old??!?

Its a great museum, all free and well worth a couple of hours to visit.
It also has a very carefully narrated exhibition on slavery and a story of London.
It has a caff, but if you are in need of something a little stronger, the Spoons almost next door is good.

One of the frustrating parts of the path for me is the fragmentation of it which I think is increasing? Love to walk along the river but then bam suddenly development, time for a detour.


On my list, should have time to go down soon :)

Mudlarking is very popular right now which is amusing.

Since I moved here the path under Chelsea, Ceremorne and Wadsworth bridges has opened up. I can't ever see the path opening up around Wadsworth waste station or the half dozen private houses just by Putney Bridge. Their gardens lead straight down to the river. Also a teeny bit more of the path is now open by Battersea power station, so there is some cheer.
