Royal Victoria Dock
Following on from a very successful trip in July, our gang of four asked Richard Albanese Photo if he could arrange a trip to Docklands to see what little was left that might interest keen industrial archaeologists. Richard planned it all in about three days flat and we met up just after 10:15 0n 28-8-11 at the former London Hydraulic Power Station at Wapping, now a pleasant cafe with machinery among the tables Photo Photo Photo. After a coffee we had a...

After giving up on waiting for the weather to improve I headed off on the 11th August 2011 to tackle NX05 and NX14 NX05 by my count had 4 green ’uns left to bag to finish the hectad so I drove over to the Rhins parked up and hopped on the mountain...
