Camden Lock, London
This is one of the barges that will take visitors from Little Venice to Camden Lock or vice versa shown near Cumberland Turn Basin.
We had some interesting views along the Regents Canal, between St. Mark's Bridge in Regents Park and Camden Lock, of which this is one.
This is where Gloucester Road and the railway cross the canal and is looking back towards Regents Park. I rather liked the way the water was reflecting light onto the underside of the girders of the railway bridge.
After looking at the view in the picture above we turned round and were faced with this - the Pirate Castle. It's obviously a modern building but unusual and it turns out to be a young peoples' activity centre.
Looking through the bridge you should be able to see another arched bridge in the distance - that's the bridge by Camden Lock.
The arched bridge is close by Camden Lock but, more importantly, it's also close by Camden Lock Market. This whole area is very popular with visitors and with good reason.
The narrowboat in the foreground is one of the water buses which travel between here and Little Venice.
This is Camden Lock seen from the footbridge and over to the left is Camden Lock Market. Camden Lock Market is an amazing place and if you like markets then this is one that you should not miss!
The Bridge over the canal seen ahead carries Chalk Farm Road giving access to either Camden Town or Chalk Farm underground stations
