Exploring the Post Office Railway
Wow. And I thought my visit to Aldwych abandoned station was impressive… these guys from Silent UK (an urban exploration blog) managed to access and explore the entirety of the ‘Mail Rail’ – an underground railway built beneath London to transport post from East to West, and abandoned since 2003.
Amazing pictures and words here.
London Loop / Tudor Prisăcariu, 2011
Ex-Sennep designer Tudor Prisăcariu has launched another of his epic photography projects – from 2011 when he walked the London Loop. This series shows a really interesting insight to London and its suburbs; there are scenes of great natural beauty juxtaposed with some really grim areas of urban decay. It all adds up to a fascinating and unusual portrayal of the city.

Some new photography now on my Flickr.
Shoreditch / Tudor Prisacariu, 2012
Tudor from Sennep has just produced this great series of landscape shots documenting Shoreditch in East London.
Bus o’clock / Sennep, 2012
Bus o’clock is a beautiful app for the iPhone by Sennep – essential for Londoners. It’s free at the app store, get it now.
OK, this is a pretty astonishing resource for people interested in London’s modern architecture. Mark Osborne has so far catalogued over 250 buildings on his site, each plotted on a map, and shown with photographs, info, and in some cases, floorplans.
Back in 2009 I posted about my attempt to start a Google Map of all my favourite buildings in London. I thought I was doing well (see the current state of the map here), but my efforts absolutely pail in comparison with this guy! Nice one Mark!
200 Aldersgate / dn&co. 2011
The guys over at dn&co. have updated with a brand new website. It’s a simple but beautifully made folio of their recent work, such as this identity for 200 Aldersgate. There’s also some snapshots of their new studio space, which looks rather nice indeed.
