Regent's Canal was constructed in the early 1800s to link the Grand Junction Canal's Paddington Arm with the River Thames at Limehouse Basin in the Docklands.
This cache is near York Way and King's Cross Station, and commands an excellent view of Battlebridge Basin.
The Basin was opened in the 1820s as a private wharf venture, and only became available to the public in recent years when London Waterways purchased it.
Now it is used for long-term and transient moorings of long boats, and has become a popular filming location for movie directors.
While you are in the area, you may want to visit the London Canal Museum, open Tuesday through Sunday, 10.00 am to 4.30 pm.
