In & Around #London #Photoblog: Simply Messing About In…

DC Editor Adam writes…

Welcome back to The Monday Photoblog! Happy New Year!


Monday is mute on The Daily Constitutional (well, almost mute) – because Monday is the day when we post five images captured in and around London by London Walks Guides and London Walkers.

Collated on a theme or an area, if you've got some great shots of our capital and want to join in send your pictures to the usual address.


This week's theme… Boats


As Ratty famously said to Mole in The Wind in the Willows, “Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.”

With Burns Night just around the corner, here's the Cutty Sark down at Greenwich…




… the vessel, built on the River Clyde in 1869, has come back from TWO fires in recent years. Well done Cutty Sark, right enough!

HMS Belfast




… saw action in WWII and during the Korean War and has been a floating museum under the auspices of the Imperial War Museum since 1978.


HMS President was launched 100 years ago this year…


The London Water Bus Company - taken last summer. From this angle…


… the boat looks sinister like a crocodile on the prowl.

From last summer, it's back to the here and now. Way out west on the Thames…



… a lone oarswoman braves the low single-digits temperatures early last Tuesday morning.





Any suggestions for the Monday In & Around slot? Do you have five London pictures you'd like to share? Drop me a line at the usual address.











A London Walk costs £10 – £8 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at www.walks.com.
