Entry Description: This series is about houseboats and living in expensive cities. In London, many people live on such boats on the canals and the Thames. It means independence and fun for some, but is also a way to avoid the horrible rents in Central London. Hidden in a vast area of canals and water reservoirs, far away from the centre the boats in the so called London Marshes are fully equipped with TV, front yards and sometimes garden gnomes. As one canal goes through the Olympic site for the 2012 games the local council thinks about pushing them out of the city so that visitors don’t have to see them.
