The Anonymous Widower

Barrier Point

We nearly bought a buy-to-let in this impressive block by the Thames Barrier.

Barrier Point, London

I just wonder what would have happened, if we’d bought the flat.

Would I now be using it as a pied-a-terre?

The Thames Barrier

The Thames Barrier protects London from flooding.

You can see it from around Pontoon Dock station on the DLR and also the Thames Clipper passed through it between Woolwich and the O2.

The Thames Barrier is something worth visiting.  The easiest way is to go to Pontoon Dock station and then walk through the attractive Thames Barrier Park.  There is a very nice cafe in the park too!

For those who are sceptical about global warming and rising sea levels, just look at the statistics about the closing of the Thames Barrier.
