Mudchute Farm and Park 2

Mudchute AK AK 2

Mudshute Urban Farm and park is 32 acres in size and right in the middle of the Isle of Dogs. The site is facinating as it is in the shadow of Canary Wharf and Londons financial heart (which feels heartless as one travels through it) and at the same time appears to be located in something of a run down area so the contrasts are quite striking.

As well as its location the site of the farm is of interest in itself.
I saw the anti aircraft gun above whilst strolling about and also noticed the pigs living in what appeared to be refurbished gun emplacements, although I could not find any information regarding these (to my mind oddities, come on Mudchute a bit of Historical info posted around the farm) I asked a staff member who informed me the site housed a battery of anti aircraft guns during World War 2.
