London is a frenetic, wonderful, difficult city to live in. The fabric of the city is constantly renewed, cranes litter the skyline, and endless variations of people's lives changing are played out as buildings are constructed and demolished.
Up high, with only the street noise from far below, there is a quietness and stillness that allows a moment of reflection.
Baku is a city of contrasts, colour and oil.
Peckham Coal Line - Flag Parade
As part of Peckham Festival in July 2017, the Peckham Coal Line team held flag making workshops, and a parade along the route of the proposed linear park, before hanging the flags in Kirkwood Nature Reserve.
The Peckham Coal Line is a resident led Initiative for a new linear link park between Queens Road Peckham & Rye Lane, aiming to repurpose disused rail coal sidings into a 1km long elevated urban park.
I joined the Peckham Coal Line team as they led guided walks along the route of a proposed "linear link park" between Queens Road Peckham & Rye Lane using disused Rickett coal sidings which were decommissioned in the 1950’s.
An elevated green walk next to the train lines which would link two parts of the neighbourhood with a small and much loved park, and the high street.
