The Shoreditch Love Lock Fence

Love Fence ShoreditchThe love for The Love Fence in Shoreditch is growing, a wire fence near Shoreditch Station is beginning to be covered in padlocks and hearts as more and more people start wondering what it’s all about.

There is a map that shows where the fence is here and the most recent picture of it is above by iggykilla.

Some people think that it might be a tribute to the locks of the Pont des Arts bridge in Paris, a sign of undying love and artwork that is due to be removed.

Padlocks and wool woven hearts have been attached to the fence and are growing in numbers.  Some padlocks have messages, some have drawings on them and some are just left as they are.

It’s a really nice progressive installation piece either way, all the padlocks confessing love and lovely messages make our hearts swell a little.

So whether it is a novel piece of artwork or an advert for these guys, it’s nice, and warms our hearts. If you know anything more comment below.
