Step inside Faraday's shed

A few steps away from the entrance to the Experimental Lighthouse - the home of the world's longest piece of music, Longplayer - at Trinity Buoy Wharf, is a small shed bearing the name 'The Faraday Effect'.

Designed by Ana Ospina and Fourth Wall Creations, the shed bills itself as one of London's smallest museums and is a tribute to the life and times of Michael Faraday.

It was at Trinity Buoy Wharf that Faraday conducted many experiments on lighthouse apparatus, using a second experimental lighthouse, built for the scientist and demolished in the 1920's.
