towards the serpentine

The Long Water and the Serpentine Bridge. Kensington Gardens, London. In this photograph, the bridge in the distance is the Serpentine Bridge, which allows traffic to cross this delightful "40-acre artifical lake" in the midle of London that was created "by damming the West Borne, a stream that no longer exists" (Wurman, 72). Shelley's first wife, Harriet Westbook drowned herself here in 1818.
