An Urban Wander from Shoreditch to Hackney (part 2 of 3, Hoxton to Cambridge Heath)
Later than I had originally hoped for, but here at last is the second installment of my Shoreditch to Hackney wander. This part covers the drift from Hoxton towards Cambridge Heath. Until recently I'd never much cared for graffiti or street art, but often i...

An Urban Wander from Shoreditch to Hackney (part 1 of 3, Shoreditch and Hoxton)
I've really been enjoying the lighter evenings and the weather over the past couple of weeks. Last week I was at a meeting in Shoreditch which gave me time to drift around one of my favourite London areas. I actually ended up wandering around more that just...

Urban Decay and Abandonment in Hammersmith
A short Urban Wander before work late last week took me past this former pub between Hammersmith and the river, The Hope & Anchor. Research suggests it is now a private residence, but if so then slightly curious that so much of its original purpose remains ...

An Urban Wander near Holland Park, London W14
I was delighted late last week when not only did I manage to find time to take a lunch break, but also the weather was reasonable, and I found a few nearby streets that I'd not wandered around before. This particular wander took me to a collection of roads ...

An Urban Wander along the Grand Union Canal from Paddington to Kensal Green
With time on my hands, and a blue sky, there was ever only one place I was going to go when working out of our Paddington office, and that was down the Grand Union Canal. I'd been about as far as the water tower on Ladbroke Grove previously, but today I was...

More Urban Wandering in and around Holland Park, London
Having been inspired by my previous urban wander around the Holland Park area , I headed straight back there on the next available, sunny lunchtime, but this time with the intention of actually entering the park itself. Archways in Holland Park, London W14 ...

An Urban Wander from Paddington to Kensington
So, here we are again with an Urban Wander that I've done in one way or another many times, but each time I manage to find a new route, or discover something new. This first picture is a perfect example of something that I've walked past countless times but...

Story
Introduction
Avid music listener and collector since the late 1970's. I like all sorts of genres ... punk, post-punk, new wave, industrial, ambient, krautrock, alternative, indie, goth ... naturally I have quite a few items I no longer need in physical format, so here's a link to my records and CDs for sale

I'm also interested in most things vintage, and have 100's of vintage postcards for sale and vintage magazines for sale

Having grown up in one of the London suburbs, I'm also interested in John Betjeman, J.G.Ballard, London suburbs, Avengerland (Borehamwood area where the classic 1960's and 1970's TV shows were filmed).
