All around the capital are stranger, lonelier spots:

• stubbed-out roads and railways

• broken-off bridges and viaducts

• scarred, barren places adjacent to areas that are still lively and flourishing

Going Nowhere investigates these locations, discovers how they became disconnected from modern London, and features photographs that capture their mysterious essences.

‘If you wondered how come London is full of stubs, dead ends and unfinished business, this book will explain how and why. A lovely take on our great city with lots of interesting stories and lots of answers for pub quizzers.’

Christian Wolmar, author of The Subterranean Railway, the story of the London Underground

‘The photographs are a view of what might have been. Viaducts come to a dead end and are overgrown with huge weeds, roads go nowhere, walls crumble. This book would give planners nightmares...and its soundtrack would have been written by Brian Eno at his bleakest best.’

Award-winning photographer and picture editor Eamonn McCabe
