Charlton Lido Sunset, July 2017

To Charlton Lido on a warm July evening to hear Theo Thomas of London Waterkeeper charity talk about the challenges of making the Thames a swimmable river. It wasn’t entirely relevant for swimmers at my end of the Thames (the currents and the law make it a less than wise choice for swimming), but still an interesting evening. It’s good to know that there are people pushing to improve the quality of our river water (though it was dispiriting to be reminded how so many of the improvements in recent decades have come from EU law, and what that might mean for a post-Brexit Britain).

On the way out the sun was setting over a very still lido.
