I had a walk around the lake in Wanstead Park earlier today, the first time for quite long while. I was surprised to see that most of the surface of the water is cover in weed, I think it's green algea, looks the same to me as the stuff covering Alexandra Lake on Wanstead Flats. It was still as lovely as ever, just a little different. I came across this platform protruding out into the water, at first I thought is was an observation deck but it turned out to be something to do with the lakes overflow system. I was however really struck by the brightly coloured padlocks that secured the safety chain, couldn't resist doing a close up.
