Hi there, Frank here… I’m back!
I’ve been off-grid for a couple of weeks because I got myself into a little bit of trouble.
I’ll tell you what happened in a bit.
Because I was naughty you might have noticed that my owners replaced me on the blog with some graffiti of another dog, which isn’t particularly nice for me, but hey-ho. That graffiti is actually quite famous and its on the side of a building near Chrisp Street Market in Poplar. It was painted by artists Irony & Boe who have also painted other animals across London.

It’s no secret that I love East London. And my adoration doesn’t just involve writing about the breath-taking views. A little bit of country is good for the soul … and that’s what (surprisingly) you’ll be in the middle of if you visit Mudchute Park & Farm on the Isle of Dogs.
If you’re looking for something to do on a Sunday afternoon, like me last Sunday, get your wellies on head down to Mudchute - it is honestly a fantastic place to visit.

Frank was a very naughty boy, so we replaced him (temporarily...)

Hi there, Frank here.
Last week I was on the beach on the Isle of Dogs. This week I’m in Ropemaker’s Fields in Limehouse.
Ropemaker’s Fields has only been here since 1994. They made it because it was just wasteland before and the people from the Docklands Development Corporation decided that grass would be nicer. It is called Ropemaker’s Fields because in the old days it was where they made rope for marine anchors, rigging and mining.
