I am also Paul W on Wikipedia. I live in Blackheath, London in the Royal Borough of Greenwich, though I have previously lived in other parts of London (including Kingsbury - where I was born - St John's Wood, Kilburn, Islington, Mile End, Kennington and the Maze Hill district of Greenwich), in Leicester and in Nantwich, south Cheshire.

I started editing Wikipedia in October 2003 (the first page I created was about Greenwich Park), and have drifted away from time to time, only to find myself drawn back for sometimes quite intense periods of editing. My edits total passed the 10,000 mark in May 2009; by the end of 2011, I had created nearly 370 pages.

My interests mainly relate to the local history of places in south-east London, and the people associated with them (particularly civil engineers and architects, but also artists, writers, politicians and others). I have taken photographs, most shared via Flickr, of many of these places.
