Paddington improvements

Work on the improvements at the far end of Paddington basin have moved on quite a lot since we were here three weeks or so ago.  The fountain is now working.  It consists of concentric circles, and different bits do their thing at different times.


The new bridge is now open and the landscaping has been done.  There are LED lights illuminating the bridge, and all eround the edge of the lawns.


They're also installing another pontoon on the hospital side, which I hope will mean a few extra mooring spaces.


There's been a little bit of boat movement in the basin.  We had a new neighbour when I got back from work last night, and that boat left this morning, to be immediately replaced by a widebeam barge.

This morning a colleague from work, who commutes into Paddington Station, came for a cup of tea on board.  At lunchtime, I headed for work, and a couple of hours later Adrian arrived from home.

And as a footnote to the mention of the coal tax obelisk on the Slough Arm, Neil from Herbie has come up with everything you need to know.   Now we'll have to look out for the others.
