Timber for Marine and Fresh Water Construction

https://scbrims.files.wordpress.com/2013/10/timber-for-marine-and-fresh-water.pdf

Saved by uncleflo on January 2nd, 2020.

The aim of this publication is to describe the use of timber for marine and fresh water constructional purposes. It indicates how timber can provide a solution to many of the problems confronting dock, harbour and river board engineers and others, concerned with water construction. With a knowledge of the hazards to which timber may be exposed, and careful selection of the species with the most appropriate properties for the job, a satisfactory and long lasting structure can be obtained at relatively low cost. The principle functions of marine and fresh water structures where timber is utilized and which are described here are:- (a) The prevention of erosion of the sea coast and of river and canal banks. (b) The construction of wharfs, jetties, docks and dock gates, and the protection of such structures by fendering and rubbing pieces. (c) The construction of marinas and yacht havens.

London by Water

Travelling around London is a little harder today. With a tube strike on, the roads are clogged with traffic jams, and the pavements are full of stressed and late commuters. How did we cope before roads and railways? Is there another network, criss-crossing through the capital? Well, yes, there’s always the waterways. Sadly, unlike Venice, London doesn’t use this network for most commutes these days (the towpaths are typically more popular than the waterways themselves), although a few more people than normal will be trying out the Thames Clipper boats today.

Wikipedia - Regent's Canal

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regent%27s_Canal

Saved by uncleflo on December 20th, 2018.

Regent's Canal is a canal across an area just north of central London, England. It provides a link from the Paddington Arm of the Grand Union Canal, 500 m north-west of Paddington Basin in the west, to the Limehouse Basin and the River Thames in east London. The canal is 13.8 kilometres (8.6 miles) long. First proposed by Thomas Homer in 1802 as a link from the Paddington arm of the then Grand Junction Canal (opened in 1801) with the River Thames at Limehouse, the Regent's Canal was built during the early 19th century after an Act of Parliament was passed in 1812. Noted architect and town planner John Nash was a director of the company; in 1811 he had produced a masterplan for the Prince Regent to redevelop a large area of central north London – as a result, the Regent’s Canal was included in the scheme, running for part of its distance along the northern edge of Regent's Park.

Living on a houseboat in London

Living on a houseboat in London: living on the water is no longer an alternative lifestyle choice as Londoners look to rivers and canals for better value homes. Londoners looking for a central home on a budget are hitting the water — and avoiding stamp duty in the process. The number of Londoners resorting to living on boats has rocketed — with many driven off dry land by the high price of conventional homes. The number of boats registered to be moored on London waterways has increased by nearly 60 per cent in the past five years to almost 4,000, according to latest figures from the Canal & River Trust, which manages 100 miles of canals in the capital including the Grand Union and Regent’s Canals. Many other floating households are in private marinas or at moorings along the Thames.

London housing crisis extends to the water

https://edition.cnn.com/2016/07/26/world/london-water-crisis/index.html

Saved by uncleflo on December 20th, 2018.

London vies with Hong Kong and Monaco for the unenviable title of the world's most expensive city for housing. The average house price in the English capital is now nearly £600,000 ($787,000), and a study from the charity Shelter found just 43 properties affordable to people on an average income. Several of these properties were houseboats. Life on London's 100-mile network of canals, or 42-mile stretch of the River Thames, has become a popular option for beleaguered citizens, and such homes can cost as little as £20,000 ($26,500). But as more people swap apartments for houseboats, the popular, romantic vision is giving way to a harsh reality.
