HELP! I'm all boxed in!! (A funny little modern attic extension on a charming little cottage).
In Twickenham, one of the communities that is part of the Borough of Richmond, Twickenham and Barnes, there are several narrow, sloping lanes that run directly down to the river from the main road which is higher up the gentle slope of what were once the old banks of the Thames.
These lanes are full of small cottages and old store rooms and work shops that were once part of the tiny riverside community that never dreamed it would become an affluent suburb of the mighty capital city that dominated the world for about 100 years. (Watch out America - you have barely 50 years left before you lose your title).
I'm boxed in too. Not much time to get out and take photos at the moment.
