 We are sorry that the planned "Great Stink" trip has been cancelled for this year. This is because asbestos has been found in one of the buildings that we were to visit. Thames Water will not allow visitors on site. We hope to rearrange it for next year when we hope that they will have made it safe to visit. A visit to the newly opened Postal museum with a ride on the miniature underground "postal" train was enjoyed instead.
