Nearby Lanterns Court Mudchute Animal Farm

Mudchute Park and Farm is located in the middle of the Isle of Dogs. It is the largest city farm in London. 32 acres of countryside in the middle of the Isle of Dogs to share with friendly fur and feathered creatures. Available for events, community groups or just simply your family picnic.

 

The farm can be easily recognized by its main courtyard containing the Mudchute Kitchen and the Farm entrance is next to the horse riding arena.

 

Mudchute is the name of a locality just south of Canary Wharf on the Isle of Dogs in Docklands, London, England. The name of the area is in testament to the engineering overspill when Millwall Dock was being constructed in the 1860s. Spoil from the excavation of the Dock, and silt from its channels and waterways were dumped on nearby land, using a conveyor system.

Isle of Dogs gets 1Gb internet speeds at your door steps!

So far nearly 100 units of the 600 homes in the block have been hooked up before any marketing has even taken place.

After years of suffering with derisory internet speeds, some long suffering residents of the Isle of Dogs have become the first to receive 1Gb broadband - about four hundred times faster than the previous norm.

Lanterns Court was the initial block in the area to benefit when it went live on Monday.

So far nearly 100 units of the 600 homes in the block have been hooked up before any marketing has even taken place.

 

Hyperoptic's director of sales and marketing Brian Doherty said: "The demand has come from those living in the developments. Residents here come from all over the world where they are used to these types of connections.

"The feedback we were getting previously were the speeds were terrible and there was no point in having internet. This changes all that."

In October, Wandsworth saw the first development linked to the high speeds thanks to Hyperoptic, the only internet service provider in the country to offer 1Gb downloads.

Internet connections for the Isle of Dogs come from Poplar Exchange where historically the performance of copper based broadband has been negatively impacted by long distances and interference from the docks, with the average speed as low as 2.5Mb per second.

BT recently put in fibre technology to increase the capabilities giving internet service providers the chance to offer much quicker and more reliable speeds by connecting from the cabinet points direct into individual apartments.

Serviced apartment group, City Nites, which has units in Lanterns Court, has had the 1Gb service installed in all 29 of its units in the building and is offering it to all its customers free of charge.

Corporate sales manager Dee Hollinsworth said: "A lot of business travellers stay around here and it's a big issue to have fast internet access."

Hyperoptic has further plans to expand the offering throughout Docklands.

Parking Jeopardy near Lanterns Court Continuous

Think twice before leaving your vehicle on a double yellow line!

Parking on Yellow Line Canary Wharf


Following our previous article Parking Jeopardy near Lanterns Court we would like to continue this topic as we still see vehicles parked on yellow lines in Millharbour and consequently being issued with parking tickets. The picture displayed to the left has been taken today outside of Cobalt Point. All three cars in the foreground have been issued with fines and who would have thought that on Sunday morning!

We would like to take this opportunity and suggest that if you or your visitor need to park a vehicle but you are not sure where then please contact our on duty Concierge who will advise you of your alternative from parking on a double yellow line.

The third car (silver Jeep) at the back is also obstructing the view for our residents as they approach the road from the exit ramp when leaving the car park therefore it is rather difficult to feel sympathy for the person who parked it there.

 

ADVISE to Residents as well as visitors:

  • Do not leave your vehicle on double yellow lines - they indicate a prohibition of waiting and parking at any time
  • If parking on a yellow line see 'Information signs' and 'Road markings' informing about the times of operation
  • If parking in a Pay & Display bay make sure you actually pay and display your receipt clearly behind the windscreen
  • If there is no space left in Pay & Display bays seek further advise at the main Concierge Desk in Denison House

 

 
The Great Boat Race on the Thames River
Written by Concierge

Join the fun on the banks of the Thames between Mortlake and Putney and cheer on the rowers!

Cambridge Oxford Boat Race


The Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race on the Thames is one of the world's longest running sports events, and one of the most popular on the London sports calendar.

 

Race starts at 2.15pm at Putney Bridge but events on the riverbank start at 12 noon.

 

Up to 250,000 people flock to the river each year to join in the celebrations and watch the Oxford and Cambridge University crews as they race over the famous four-and-a-quarter mile course from Putney to Mortlake.

In 2011, Oxford won the 157th Boat Race, taking their overall tally to 76 races won against Cambridge's 80.

As one of the few free sporting spectacles in London, The Boat Race creates a festival atmosphere on the banks of the River Thames.

You can find a place to watch on either side of the river along the full length of the course, but particular areas to note are:

  • Putney Bridge, Putney Embankment and Bishop's Park (at the start)
  • Craven Cottage, home of Fulham FC (best for the first mile)
  • Hammersmith and Barnes (mid-course)
  • Duke's Meadows and Chiswick Bridge (at the finish)

 

About The Boat Race:

The two university rowing teams first raced each other in 1829, and the race has been held annually since 1856, with the exception of the World Wars.

It's said every member of the Boat Race crews trains for approximately two hours for every stroke they take. It takes about 600 strokes to complete the course.

Scratch your head and think again before leaving your vehicle on a yellow line!

Parking Jeopardy at Lanterns Court


ATTENTION: We have detected increased activity of the men with sun glasses!

 

Many drivers come across a traffic warden at some point in their lifetimes. Those who do not are either unquestionably lucky or exceptionally careful. One of our friends has unfortunately gone today through rather unpleasant experience of something he has never participated in before. He left his comfortable car on one of double yellow lines in Millharbour for "10min" only. On his return, instead of sitting himself inside his automobile, he had no choice but to observe the vehicle being towed away by a monster truck to a location-to-be-learnt-yet.

 

The good news is that, if one finds himself in a similar pickle, there are number of options given to us by the London Transport in form of the DLR, the Tube, the Red Buses and of course cabs.

 

 

ADVISE to Residents as well as visitors:

  • Do not leave your vehicle on double yellow lines - they indicate a prohibition of waiting and parking at any time
  • If parking on a yellow line see 'Information signs' and 'Road markings' informing about the times of operation
  • If parking in a Pay & Display bay make sure you actually pay and display your receipt clearly behind the windscreen
  • If there is no space left in Pay & Display bays seek further advise at the main Concierge Desk in Denison House
