Paddington: Pubs, Penicillin, Pineapples and Plaques
A walk exploring three contrasting areas – the former working canal area of Paddington Basin, the old village of Paddington now ‘marooned’ on the other side of the Westway and the lesser travelled streets of the tourist hub of Little Venice.
We start in the area once known derisively as ‘Stinking Paddington’ or the ‘Paddington Alps’ because of the piles of rubbish that awaited transportation out of London.
Although some imagination is required in the area which was once the old village of Paddington there is still evidence of its former life and connections with the wealthy and famous.
Next public walk:
Saturday 2nd May 2020 – 11am-1pm (coinciding with the Canalway Cavalcade)
