Rotherhithe to Canada Water

11th December 2007
The distance between Rotherhithe and Canada Water underground stations is about the same as that between Wapping and Rotherhithe. However for this section of my walk I don’t have the Thames to get round so I can take a fairly direct route.

I head past a Job Centre and few derelict building near the station.

I head through a very quiet concil estate with some tall tower blocks in order to get to Cananda Water. As you can see from my tracks there is no direct way from the estate to Canada Water so I had to head around the tower blocks and then up Surrey Quays Road.

Below is a photo of the entrance and inside of Canada Water station. It is a very new station having only been opened in 1999 when this stop was added to the Jublilee and East London underground lines.
