St Paul’s Cathedral, from Richmond Park
(Via my Vimeo)
Last year, I posted about various protected sight lines in London, which prevent large buildings being built in locations that will block certain views to/from important landmarks. This view is the thin red line that heads out of the bottom-left corner of that map.
I’ve been to Richmond Park a few times, but couldn’t find King Henry’s Mound for love nor money on the last couple of occasions. For good reason, as it turns out, because it’s off the main part of the park, on the other side of a road and thoroughly hidden behind loads of foliage.
It’s definitely worth finding though, as the view to St Paul’s Cathedral is phenomenal. It was a bit hazy on the day I filmed this, but you can see it well enough. I need to go back on a clear day and really get the full effect.
