Riverside walk by the Thames

A quick shuffle up Nine Elms Road from Vauxhall tube station takes you on to the Riverside walk.
Battersea Power Station in the distance.
A none-too-easy-on-the-eye 'Father Thames' sculpture from the 1980s.
Boat house on the Thames. We attended a wedding reception here once.
William Henry Walk.
Disused building where the walk briefly connects back with the main road..
Houseboat by Nine Elms pier.
Moored boat houses at Nine Elms pier. I can't say being stuck on a mud bank facing huge concrete columns looks to be much of a des res to me.
High security entrance to Nine Elms pier.
The marvellously monikered Cringle Street.
Unfortunately the Lambeth's waste disposal and recycling centre is on this street so the whiff is a little on the lively side.
Looking down Cringle Street towards Battersea Power Station.
Old Farmiloes building. I used to work for this company in their Smithfield offices years ago.
Read my horror story here: My office job hell, the misery of my pen pushing existence at Farmiloe and Farmiloe.
Old and new Battersea.
