Reflections of Late Afternoon Landscapes by The Grand Union Canal

A close-up of a Little Venice sign painted on a boat. In the background canal water, reflections of the rows of residential buildings along the canal. Late afternoon landscapes reflective of Spring by the Grand Union Canal (GUC), Regents Canal and Little Venice, London, England, United Kingdom. The Commercialization of the GUC, Paddington Arm has led to inexorable growth in the numbers of boats heading into London. This is putting pressure on services, pressure on moorings, much as other aspects of London life are experiencing stresses and strains. Canals are almost linear villages, they have services and communities growing along the canal. They are a city within a city. However, growing on Londona??s waterways, presents another problem; a growing group of vulnerable people. Along the canals there are those who live on boats after marriage breakups and other life crises, former soldiers, and those who have spent redundancy packages on a new life in retirement, only for it to not work out. Boaters apparently want a zone-one location to live, work and play, opting to live on boats instead of finding housing in lower-cost locations. Boaters use public services provided by councils but do not pay council taxes towards those services. A few send their kids to schools claiming they live in the borough and others even register to vote. This overpopulation of the canals in London, 2000 moorings against 3000 boats, along with the revitalization of the Paddington arm of the Grand Union Canal is making house boat living on London canals largely for the affluent. A narrow boat with limited living space at the edge of the Grand Union Canal near Brentford with a year's mooring lease costs A£60, 000 to A£80, 000
