Russia Dock Woodland, London


Extract from Wild London.

Where once stevedores humped timber from the forests of eastern Europe, now trees grow and butterflies dance in long grass. It would be easy to overlook that this was a working dock until the 1970s were it not for bollards, mooring chains and other elements from the area’s past which have been incorporated into its fabric.
