Thames Path Thames Barrier to Deptford

I decided as it was such a nice day to go out for a long walk. I could not make my mind up to start with whether I was going to walk into town along the Thames or go to the Thames Barrier and walk back from there.
In the end I decided to go to The Barrier as I have not been there in years. At the Barrier there was a nice grass area with a good view of the Thames and the Barrier.  Following the path I went under the Barrier assess started the long walk to Deptford.  Along the way to the Dome the path leaves the side of the Thames for a  little while.
Returning to the Thames I found a very strange sculpture thingy that is above but have no idea what it really is.  Further down was an Ecology park which I will have to go back to at some point.
The O2 is somewhat underwhelming (is that a word?) but a little way down the path was an interesting piece of artwork called ‘Slice of Reality’ which is a slice of a boat/ship.
Soon I discovered a small slice of England not ruled by the Health and Safety overlords.  There are NO GUARD RAILS to stop you falling into the Thames.  How exciting!
