Next time you’re crossing Hungerford Bridge on the downstream side, take a look over the edge of the southern support pier. You’ll notice dozens of shattered skateboards. This is the Skateboard Graveyard, the final resting place of many a cherished deck, broken during ill-judged stunts in the undercroft beneath the nearby Queen Elizabeth Hall, and flung from the bridge onto this wheely Valhalla.
Alistair Leak sends us this recent photo of the graveyard, in which the roller-relics have been grouped into a large ‘number one’ shape. Who’s behind it? Is this an act of art, commemoration or desecration? Let us know below if you have any more info on this subcultural shuffle.
