THIS WEEK’S PHOTO

Paul_Walsh

It was over two and a half years ago when I began walking the Grand Union canal. I recently re-visited a section and came across this area just a few miles from central London. On my first visit there were warehouses stretching all along the canal. When I returned I found that all of these buildings were now rubble, demolished to make way for a new building project. As I stood watching planes coming and going from Heathrow nearby, I thought about how much the landscape is continually changing around us. In only two and a half years this entire landscape was completely unrecognisable. The previous story of this area has now been lost, destroyed for the beginning of a new one.
