Docklands Secrets - April 2013 Image

Love is locked in

A lone padlock adorns the wires of the fence on Harbour Esplanade.

In a Parisian-style expression of love, the single lock carries the simple message “Calum 4 Laura”.

People have been locking padlocks to bridges throughout Europe since the early 2000s, most famously in Paris, but also in Prague, Rome, Florence, Moscow and Cologne.

Lovers write a message on the padlock then lock it to the bridge and throw away the key, symbolising their unbreakable bond.

Perhaps others will follow the example of Calum and Laura and add their own lock to create a growing public proclamation of love.
