island hopping in central london

i discovered an island yesterday. i suspect someone found it before me (and put this sign up) but i thought i’d go exploring and consider if it was the kind of place i’d like to live

it contained one small mountain and a number of trees

looking the other way it was clear to see that it was a long thin island separated from the main land by two busy roads. it was nice to see a bollard was already nesting here so i felt quite at home

the view westwards was a little disappointing. instead of a vast expanse of sea, all i could see was a BMW garage and a bendy bus

on the way back i spotted this treasure map. the photos above were taken at location 6 – the strangely unmarked island.
