Notes from the Island

The Island welcomes everybody. Every day many visit and thousands pass close by, though few notice it. It is a place of brief encounters, of buried secrets, of moments glimpsed in rear-view mirrors. A brief pause on a journey. The Island has no border controls, no prisons, no buying and selling. Is it a utopia? Perhaps it could be, a sanctuary of non-interference amidst the surveillance cameras. The Island, London SE14 - much more than just a traffic island on the A2, New Cross Road.

Twinned with Shell Island

We are very keen to twin the Island with other interesting sites, including of course other islands. This could take the form of bringing offerings to the Island from other places, or vice versa. Our first such self-organised twinning arrangement is with Shell Island in Wales, from where Pirate Paul brought back these shells to the Island. We can now reveal that this was the content of the hidden treasure chest, now sadly swept away by street clearers.
