North bank becoming as pedestrian-friendly as south bank

Completion of Watermark Place and the riverside walkway has created a pedestrian-friendly walk to rival that on the South Bank.

    Thanks for sending me this. We hope to walk it.
    I put some of the pictures on “Tip or Skip”. Check out that website, I think you’ll find it interesting.
