The Horses Of Camden
Further to the post below complaining about the lack of craft touches in London, I now have to eat my words. The rebuilt stables at the north end of Camden Market are a sight to behold. Virtually everywhere you turn there are massive bronze statues and friezes of horses, ostlers, stableboys, guardsmen and others whose lives were entwined with horses. The old horse hospital and the labyrinths beneath them are now filled with such touches. It’s a fitting memorial to the horses who pulled the canal barges here. I’ll be posting more of these in the coming days.
