Friends of Regent’s Canal letter in CNJ

Just a quick post – letter from Friends of Regent’s Canal in this weeks’ Camden New Journal.

Many points re overcrowding, overstayers, licensing etc. Food for thought.

Note the next date for FoRC is 26 Nov at the London Canal Museum, King’s Cross.

The guy from Friends of Regent’s Canal!

This afternoon I very quickly visited the Angel Canal Festival in Islington. This is held every year on the first weekend of September. Rather than focus on boats, this time round I have posted a social commentary picture (eg boat-free) of the entrance to Islington tunnel on the London Canals website.

My choice of picture from the festival (another boat-free choice!) is this study of Ian Shacklock, who runs the Friends of the Regent’s Canal advocacy group, in their stall by City Road basin.

The picture in the background is a painting of the bridge by the Regent’s Canal at Old Ford. This bridge forms the entrance to the Hertford Union canal.
