New plans for Enderby’s Wharf

Plans for Enderby’s Wharf to become a cruise liner terminal have been submitted to Greenwich Council.

The early Victorian Enderby House associated with General Gordon would be incorporated into the development but locals are not happy. Nearby Lovell’s Wharf is already closed for ¬†along period.

The best view of the Enderby’s Wharf proposals can be seen on the Docklands 24 site.

Christina Hardyment reaches Cricklade

Author Christina Hardyment has been sailing up the Thames and a week ago with much effort made it to Cricklade by punt.

She has now written up her blog. Her tales of stopping at the Red Lion at Castle Eaton, ordering a taxi to link up with a rare bus and visiting Kelmscot Manor will make interesting reading to those of us who have ventured upstream.

It’s good to hear about the painting restoration at Ingelsham Church.

Christina’s report makes me want to get back to the Oxfordshire and Wiltshire Thames now.
