Default OT- Thames Barrier Park


One of the more bizarre aerial photos I've found... reminiscent of a
Mondrian. Now that Google Earth has entered into the common consciousness,
developers will start to spend as much time worrying about the view from
above as they do about the view from the ground, and we will see more and
more of this sort of thing.

What, like at New Providence Wharf (upriver a bit, opposite the Dome -
can't figure out how to do direct links for Live maps, and it's been built
over on Google's pics)?

Or here - trust the gas board to write it upside-down:

Is it true the park is now surrounded by a fence? Why? How can you get
into it?

I take it that I'm not the only one to be amused that John talked about
Google Maps but posted a link to something completely different that
didn't work.
