Moving on to Woolwich Arsenal…I’d seen that there was some interesting statues and an interesting foot tunnel to have a look at…plus I fancied seeing the Thames Barrier.
A last minute decision to troop into London on Saturday wasn’t quite as successful as I’d hoped due to a heavy fog that took forever to lift…and then still lingered as quite a heavy haze.
The HMS Belfast is a fixture of the Thames now. Launched on St Patricks Day (obviously) in 1938 she saw action in the Second World War and the Korean War. She was finally moored on the Thames and turned into a museum in 1971. This photograph shows the detail of the plimsol line.
