Nearby Lanterns Court Mudchute Animal Farm

Mudchute Park and Farm is located in the middle of the Isle of Dogs. It is the largest city farm in London. 32 acres of countryside in the middle of the Isle of Dogs to share with friendly fur and feathered creatures. Available for events, community groups or just simply your family picnic.

 

The farm can be easily recognized by its main courtyard containing the Mudchute Kitchen and the Farm entrance is next to the horse riding arena.

 

Mudchute is the name of a locality just south of Canary Wharf on the Isle of Dogs in Docklands, London, England. The name of the area is in testament to the engineering overspill when Millwall Dock was being constructed in the 1860s. Spoil from the excavation of the Dock, and silt from its channels and waterways were dumped on nearby land, using a conveyor system.

GREEN ENVIRONMENT

 

 

green environment

Part of the design for Lanterns Court was to build a site which would not only be an easily accessible development consisted of blocks of flats but also to bring fresh touch of the nature within communal areas. The foot path outside of Trinity Tower benefits from trees in beddings full of soil with bark chippings on top. There are plants and flowers growing out of flower borders outside of Denison House, Cobalt Point and Westwood House. In addition, there is a large flower bedding in the Barton Mews Courtyard at the back of Cobalt Point. Last but not least, there are two raised lawns at the back of Denison House.

 

Additionally, there is a small park by the river called Sir John McDougal Gardens which can be reached by walk in about five minutes. Also, there are two large parks - Madchute Park and Millwall Park - which could serve as great places for a jog in the morning or an afternoon walk. Those of you who would like to taste a little bit of a countryside life, can stop by the Mudchute Animal Farm which also has a horse riding school.

Consultation on improved river crossings
Written by Concierge   
Monday, 29 October 2012 18:51

TFL's reference number: 3003620

In early 2012 the Transport for London held consultation to seek your views on improving river crossings in East and South London. TFL asked individuals and businesses to give opinions on two infrastructure projects:

  • The “Silvertown Tunnel” – a road tunnel running between the Greenwhich Peninsula and Silvertown, and
  • The “Gallions Reach Ferry” – a new vehicle ferry running beween Thamesmead and Beckton

Below is a copy of the letter addressed to people living in East and South London:

"We’d like to hear your opinions on a more detailed set of plans, including locations and designs, potential benefits and impacts, and options for funding the crossings.

Information on these proposals is available on the consultation website at tfl.gov.uk/rivercrossings or you can request a leaflet by calling us on 0843 222 1234.

You can give us your views by completing the questionnaire online at tfl.gov.uk/rivercrossings.

We are holding a series of roadshows to give people the chance to come and discuss the proposals with us. You can find out about details of roadshow locations and dates by clicking here (pdf file).

This consultation will close on 1 February 2013."

 

Yours sincerely,

Peter Bradley
