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

Photo shows: Miss Evyline Nichol and her ATS friend Audrey Towend wheeling a pram

Photo shows: Miss Evyline Nichol and her ATS friend Audrey Towend wheeling a pram load of bedding to their new home in Duchess of Bedford Walk, West Kensington.
September 8th 1946.
Story: In heavy rain, 1500 Londoners converged on Kensington High Street in a well-planned operation to take over a block of flats in Duchess of Bedford Walk, West Kensington. The block housed refugees from Gibraltar during the war and was next a hostel for a local building trades school. After being repaired and decorated the building was to be handed back to the owners by the Ministry of Works and luxury flats were to be let at a minimum rent of ten guineas a week. More people arrived seeking homes than could be accommodated. The police arranged for hot drinks to be served and among those present at the invasion were a number of Councillors for Kensington and other boroughs including Stepney, from where a party of squatters had come seeking homes. Mr. Denis Goodwin of the London District of the Communist Party hoped the action taken by 1500 Londoners would call attention to the existence of places such as these.
