“Everything’s set in this waterscape…”

When these two things come together it’s rainbow, rainbow, rainbow. The two things being 1) seeing a part of London I’ve never been to before; and 2) being shown round it by someone who knows it really well, knows its history, its nooks and crannies, its people, its turns of speech, its flavours and favours. That’s what we get here. Greenland Dock. Had I been to Greenland Dock before? Listen, I hadn’t even heard of Greenland Dock before. And as for Jackie – guide Jackie – she’s the one. She’s assured, warm, enthusiastic, fascinated by this “lost” corner of London. Tacking and trimming down Greenland Dock way with Jackie – traversing Thames terra incognita with Jackie piloting – it doesn’t get any better than this.
