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].
Another picture of the West Ham Gas works without the train, or canary wharf
