Best Of The London Blogs: 27 March-2 April

Best Transport Post Of The Week
A Look At What's Happening At Tottenham Court Road, By London Reconnections
Northern Line trains will not be stopping at the busy station from this weekend until November. While the Standard redeploy their favourite anger words, London Reconnections takes a supportive and informative view of the works, which will install a much improved ticket hall and access to Crossrail.

Honourable Mentions: How do you persuade people to let others off the Tube first? Annie Mole presents a pictorial history of posters and signs. Meanwhile, Diamond Geezer uncovers a proposed Tube map, complete with cable car and Crossrail.

Best Pop Cultural Post Of The Week
The Muppets In London, By The Great Wen
It's a little-known fact that much of Jim Henson's fuzzy frolics were written and performed right here in London. Peter Watts rounds up the capital's Muppet connections, before embedding five Muppet musical numbers connected with the city. Pete also deserves a mention for his brief history of defacing London statues, published after someone defaced a Trafalgar Square lion during last weekend's protest.


Best Photography Post Of The Week
Spitalfields Nippers, By Spitalfields Life
An incredible collection of portrait photos showing ragged and filthy street children from 1912.

Best Food Post Of The Week
The Bread, Cake & Biscuit Walk, By Spitalfields Life
A second helping of Spitalfields Life this week, as The Gentle Author wanders around town looking for historical bakery connections. We learn of the ancient loaves of St Magnus, the biscuit sent as a letter and the wedding cake connections of St Bride's.

Best Behind-The-Scenes Post Of The Week
Tower Bridge Behind The Scenes, By Caroline's Miscellany
The bascules of the iconic crossing have remained stationary these past few months, while the bridge undergoes maintenance. Caroline used the opportunity to visit the engine room and bascule chamber, and brought a few photos and videos back.

Honourable Mention: King's Cross Local Environment gets a tour of redevelopment work on King's Cross station. Who knew there was a mini rail track on the roof?

New And Improved London Blogs
From The Murky Depths
Dave Hill points us towards this new south-east London site, which covers architecture and the built environment in that part of the capital.

Ian Visits
Old stalwart of the London blogging scene and custodian of the city's most intellectual events calendar gets a facelift. We like.

Have we missed anything outstanding? Let us know in the comments?
