The WRONG & Winding Road

DC Editor Adam writes…

Oh it does make me chuckle. The wrong Abbey Road




I know it makes my guiding colleague Richard Porter and many others actively cross (no pun intended).

The Abbey Road DLR Station in East London is NOWHERE NEAR THE FAMOUS ROAD CROSSING WHERE THE BEATLES SHOT THEIR ALBUM SLEEVE.

For that you want ST JOHN'S WOOD ON THE JUBILEE LINE.




Abbey Road DLR station has caused a degree of confusion among music fans in search of The Beatles' famous recording studio. So much so that a sign has been placed at the station to help stray musos…


Back in 2016 I visited the wrong Abbey Road (on purpose!) for the London Walks Podcast. At Abbey Road DLR station, I met Arjan from Istanbul. Sure enough, he was looking for The Beatles…





Arjan graciously agreed to take part in the podcast and afterwards we managed to get him back on track!

Here's the podcast…






If you DO end up at Abbey Road on the DLR, and not St John's Wood on the Jubilee Line for Abbey Road Studios, all is not lost! There's still a flake of Rock'n'Roll London history quite nearby.

The old Abbey Mills Pumping Station is but a hop, skip and jump from London's most confusing station.

In March 1968 Pink Floyd filmed at Abbey Mills Pumping Station (designed by Sir Joseph Bazalgette) in deepest East London.

Producer Tony Palmer (who went on to make the monumental All You Need Is Love documentary series on popular music with contributions from, among others, Charles Chilton) captured a performance of post-Syd Barrett Pink Floyd doing Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun.





Find Abbey Mills here…




I'm leading the Beatles Magical Mystery Tour for London Walks on Sundays 28th April, 15th May & 19th May at 11 am meet at Tottenham Court Road tube. Book now…

The Monday Photoblog… Fierce Beasts

DC Editor Adam Scott-Goulding writes…



Monday is ALMOST mute here on The Daily Constitutional. I always launch the week with a few London photos, grouped on a theme or neighbourhood.


This week: Here be dragons… and unicorns… oh, and pussycats…



St Michael fights off a seven-headed demon at St Michael Paternoster Royal



Psychedelic Leopards at Dyers' Hall



A free unicorn at Apothecaries' Hall…




… a not-so-free unicorn – chained by the King of Scotland's crown – at St Mary Abchurch 




Grrrr


A very fine cat indeed – Hodge waits for his master Doctor Johnson near Fleet Street








The Monday Photoblog will return next week. In the meantime, if you'd like to share a London photo with me, please do! Perhaps you joined me on a tour and snapped a great shot. Drop me a line.
