Urban Archaeology

Urban archaeology, Bollo Lane. Wandering around the back of Acton last week, looking for lost rivers, as one does, I ended up having a closer look at this structure, which I’ve driven past so many times. Apparently Bollo Brook runs beneath, before winding its way to Chiswick House and the water feature there (photo 2). Found out that it’s half of a bridge which used to carry a branch of the District Line, and was demolished in the early 1960’s. Needs a bit of tidying, but maybe Acton’s answer to New York’s High Line. 🙂 #urbanarchaeology #urbanwalks #lostrivers #lostlondon #acton #london #urbanlandscape #oldrailways #railwayline
