Ten years ago today I created the 159th post for Greenford 365. To mark the blog’s anniversary I will attempt to post a photo every day throughout 2022.
It’s hard to believe, on such a quiet, sunny morning, that this waterway was once a busy part of the UK’s transport and industrial infrastructure. The Paddington Arm of the Grand Union Canal opened in 1801, connecting the Midlands with the capital. The towpath is a different matter, I was lucky to capture a moment without a cyclist, e-scooter rider or runner passing by. This can be a frightening and unsafe place for pedestrians who have to share a fairly narrow space with them, especially when the growth on the path has yet to be cut back.
