It did not sink much as water is quite shallow. However, I suppose that might have been the reason why the dwellers decided not to dwell it anymore. It is a bit beyond the idea of having a water bed.
Or it could have been the other way around. The inhabitants got simply tired with living on a boat. Poor thing felt useless and “jumped of a bridge”…
The Thames is the river of London. It has been its backbone for centuries, neighbours many important buildings and historical places, offers amazing city or industrial landscapes.
As nice as it is and as much as I like it, it is not the only one. There is a few smaller rivers and canals which also played their role in developing the city. And, as well, they also offer a nice walk (or bike ride) with something on the way to catch photographers eye. Below you can find pictures mostly from Lee river.
