|Frost Fair 1684 Henry Glindoni|
Sadly the Frost Fairs are no more, due to the demolition of the old London Bridge which made the river flow stronger, I suppose stopping the freezing of the Thames to such an extent that you could not roast an animal safely on top of it. A new bridge was opened in 1831 and the Fair was no more. However, I am willing to invest in a gilded sleigh and muff combo in hopeful expectation that the Thames, or failing that the Kennet and Avon, or even the municipal paddling pool, will freeze sufficiently so I can sally forth with some style. Big boots on, it's going to get chilly!
See you tomorrow.
