Samuel Pepys (whoever he is) talks about a visit to the ropeyard in 1664, and Tsar Alexander II (no idea) of Russia (if think that’s in West London) visited in 1871.
The park sits right on top of the Limehouse Link Tunnel which connects Wapping with Canary Wharf. If you go to the top of the park you can walk along the canal at Limehouse Cut and if you keep walking you go all the way to Bow and keep walking some more and you get to Victoria Park.
Sometimes the canal gets some green stuff on the top of it. It looks like grass. I’ve known that ever since I jumped on the grass and found out it wasn’t. I got a bit wet… True story.
Anyhoo, see you next week.
