West Ham Gas Works

A walk along the canal that borders the District Line from Upminster to Hammersmith, via West Ham and Mile End etc. It is the green line on the London Tube map.

I am not a clever photographer,  but I love this picture - the old and the new, water and electricity and gas. Technology from a grassy bank.

West Ham Gas Works in June 2006, with the District Line & Creek in the foreground and Canary Wharf Tower in the background [just visible].
