Battersea Power Station Station To Battersea Power Station Pier – 18th September 2022

I walked between Battersea Power Station station and Battersea Power Station pier.

Note.

  1. A new route between the station and the pier has been opened up, which is shorter.
  2. The development opens on the fourteenth of next month, but there is already some good restaurants and coffee shops.
  3. The corgi was the first one I’d met for a few years.

I walked between the station and the pier in under ten minutes.

Battersea Power Station To London Bridge – 18th September 2022

I took a Thames Clipper from Battersea Power Station to London Bridge.

Note.

  1. The South Bank is generally to the left in the pictures.
  2. I took a Northern Line train to Battersea Power Station pier.
  3. As I finished at London Bridge pier, it was convenient for the Northern Line.
  4. I took these pictures from the back of the boat in the open as the windows were so dirty.
  5. In some pictures you can see the power of the boat, as it pulls away from the stops.
  6. The boat passed three of the super sewer sites.
  7. There were large numbers on the South Bank queuing to pay their respect to The Queen.

The fare was £7.70 on my Oyster card and the journey took under forty minutes.

Bank Station – 16th September 2022

On August 13th, I wrote What Goes Up Must Come Down, where I described the crane coming down over the new Bank station entrance on Cannon Street.

The triangular site, that lies between Cannon and King William Streets, has now been opened up for development, as these pictures show.

Note.

  1. I took the pictures from the top of a 141 bus, that was going to London Bridge station.
  2. It is going to be a large block on top of the station.
  3. Do the pictures indicate retail or further station entrances along King William Street?
  4. This development must help in the financing of the massive Bank Station Upgrade.

This is the last picture, shown to a larger scale.

On the end of the lowest level of the portable offices, you can just about make out a sign indicating a ladies toilet.

Is this the most inaccessible ladies toilet in London? Or even the world?
