    Harsh, but interesting nevertheless particularly for someone who has always lived fairly near the Thames.. watch your step if you are partying or drinking at places near the river-banks!

    Bleak, sad but interesting reading. Makes the Thames seem evil.

    there’s nothing evil about the Thames apart from what we as humans contaminate it with; its just like any bit of nature it must be treated with respect.

    80% of our drinking water in my area comes from the Thames btw

    * General Lighting watches everyone reading in the Thames Valley rush out to buy water filters.. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I know that you silly sausage. I just mean it kind of bestows that feeling upon it hearing all that.

    was perhaps a bit on the defensive as we always get people outside London/SE saying how filthy it is etc… ๐Ÿ™‚

    admittedly it can be spooky at night – particularly if you decide to cycle from Reading to High Wycombe at 0300 on a December night/morning beside the deserted Thames path… (was worth it in the end though as there was a party at the end of it)

    good thing I can tell the calls of small animals and birds apart from ghosts ๐Ÿ™‚
