Step inside a canal-side London home

16 images

Standing on the terrace of this canal-side home, all is as peaceful as a scene from Wind in the Willows and there is barely a murmur of traffic. Ducks quack; an oar splashes the water; a flower-strewn canal boat chuffs past, rippling the green water. “It’s a secret world with a secret life in the middle of London”.
