Pottering in Greenwich

On Sunday we had a wander along the river at Greenwich. Although we’ve lived in Docklands for a year now, we’ve not been down there for a walk since we moved. It was chilly but not too cold to enjoy a walk. I took the camera along so there are a few photos from the walk on my Flickr site.

After walking eastwards along by the river, we visited the National Maritime Museum which I don’t think I’ve ever been to before. We attended a talk about the Princess Alice disaster of 1878. More than 600 people were killed when a coal-freighter cut a passenger steamer in half just by Beckton Gas Works. We had heard about the accident when we visited the Museum in Docklands last year so it was interesting to learn more.

  1. Really nice there isn’t it? Joan and I used to go there quite a lot, it’s one of our favourite parts of London. We have a photo of Joan with Lorna in her buggy on the Greenwich side, after Victoria and I had walked through the Pedestrian Tunnel under the river. Bloody long walk there and back!
