Canal Cavalcade - Part 1

On Saturday we went up to Little Venice in London to the Bank Holiday Canal Cavalcade. We went to St.Pancras and then walked the four miles along the Regent's Canal.
Before we got to the canal we visited the Camley Street Natural Park which is run by the London Wildlife Trust.
The park is an innovative and internationally acclaimed nature reserve situated in the heart of King's Cross. Sandwiched between the Regent's Canal and St.Pancras International, it is one of the first purposely created nature reserves in the UK.
The park is built on the site of an old railway coal yard, having been saved from development in the early 1980's following a campaign by local wildlife enthusiasts.
These terrapins seem to like it! (They're about 10" across)

It's very strange being right by the Eurostar terminal and being in this little oasis of peace and calm.
