Greenwich and the Thames


Greenwich is a very beautiful parkland on the outskirts of Lon­don, on the bank of the River Thames. The Thames, a major waterway of England, flows from Cotswolds to the North Sea and is about 210 miles long. It flows via Oxford, Reading and London.

Greenwich is famous for Greenwich Mean Time, the Royal Ob­servatory and the National Maritime Museum.

The National Maritime Museum tells the story of Britain and the sea. The star attraction of the Museum is the Neptune Hall, which explains the development of boats from prehistoric times to the pres­ent day. In the Nelson Galleries you can see the uniform jacket, with a bullet hole in the left shoulder, which Nelson was wearing when he was fatally wounded at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805.

The old Royal Observatory is part of the Maritime Museum and consists of a few historic buildings, high on the Hill above the Thames. Early telescopes and time-measuring instruments are dis­played in Flamsteed House where John Flamsteed, the first Astrono­mer Royal, lived. The large Gate Clock measures Greenwich Mean Time, the standard by which time is set all round the world. And you can stand astride the Greenwich Mereidian, marked by a brass strip crossing the Observatory courtyard.

On the eve of the visit to Greenwich Mr. Hill and the Group Leader had a talk:

David: Well, tomorrow we are to visit Greenwich, a very picturesque spot of London.

Andrew: Yes, I remember that. I have heard so much about it but I've never been there.

David: I'm sure you all will enjoy the visit. I hope the weather will be as good as it is today.

Andrew: I hope so. The weather has been wonderful these days.

David: I just wanted to ask you for advice. What way would you prefer to get to Greenwich?

Andrew: And what ways are there?

David: Well, we can get there by train, by boat or byDLR. It is not very far.

Andrew: And what way would you like?

David: By DLR. It's a few minutes' ride from the centre. Then we should cross the Thames. There is a special tunnel beneath the Thames to Greenwich. It is called the Greenwich Foot Tunnel. There are two elevators on both banks of the river.

Andrew: Let me ask the participants... I'll be back in a minute... Yes, David, they also prefer DLR. and the walk be­neath the Thames. It must be very curious.
