British Land are adding a corporate touch to my Unusual Front Gardens strand with their colour co-ordinated narrowboat moored at the Paddington Basin, aka the Paddington Arm of the Grand Junction Canal.
NAH and I had a pleasant walk to here along the Regent's Canal from Camden Lock recently, taking in Regent's Park, London Zoo, elegant houses, boat owners' gardens and Little Venice along the way. It an easy escape from the hustle and bustle of London for two and a half miles. Here are some photos from our walk:
The boat owners' gardens also count as Unusual Front Gardens, especially where they spilled over and across the towpath.
Finally, back at Paddington Basin, we find the corporate watering cans. Don't be fooled by the grass, it's artificial!
