Blackheath Funfair fenced in by GPS


Here’s a GPS trace of the Blackheath Funfair fencing. It’s the first time I can remember them fencing the funfair off, and several people have tweeted asking whether this is legal. I have no idea, but I suspect that the police would view it as not worth the bother, even if it isn’t… Much like the council’s attitude towards Foxtons and their illegal lighting.

Anyway, at least you’ve got a record of the first encroachment. So that when the funfair decides to declare the Independent People’s Republic of Fairgroundia, you can say that you remember where it began.

GPS trail made using the Trails app.

The Greenwich Park Encroachments…

If I had more time (which I don’t right now), I would take my GPS phone, and walk around all of the Olympic encroachments within Greenwich park. Trace a line exactly around the boundaries, and see that they match up exactly with what was promised. Trails is a good app to use for this. If anyone else has time, please send me the trails that you make! I can understand certain areas being fenced off, but is is really necessary to hang sheets over the fences to block the view?
