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.

Blackheath Circus

The big top at the circus in Blackheath by Flickr user pic fix

Wonderful photo of the Big Top at the Blackheath Circus, as of last year… I can’t find any really nice creative-commons photos of this year’s circus otherwise I’d add them.  There’s this one, but it’s copyrighted.  If you aren’t scared of clowns, then the current circus is on until 14th April – see their site for more info.  Although it seems wrong that they have a website, unless the server is running inside a wooden caravan powered by an elephant on a treadmill… Which I don’t think they encourage these days.
