Wow very interesting! Love it, do remember reading something about this in some book...... too many books.... to little memory. :-)ReplyDelete
I know the feeling: too many books, not enough time, failing memory....or perhaps that's just me.ReplyDelete
thanks once again, for commenting.
Very interesting post, Grace - I remember asking my father once where those historic milestones (you know, x miles to London)actually ended and he told me Marble Arch. I therefore assumed that meant Marble Arch was considered the centre of London, but everyone who lives in London knows it isn't.ReplyDelete
Personally I always thought the heart was Piccadilly Circus.
Speaking of the Olympics, where I live (quite close to Hampton Court) the cycling events have recently been taking place so for hours today I've had helicopters hovering over my house and frazzling my nerves.
Quality of work today = not good. My Olympic feline wasn't too happy with the noise either >^○^< - she hid in my wardrobe all day!
Thanks for an interesting post.
Very interesting. I live in Yorkshire and your post reminds me of an Eleanor Cross which I always thought meant that the royal funeral procesion stopped at Sledmere, but sadly I see it's a modern copy of the cross. Still, it's pretty interesting to look at, and now I'll know a bit more about the original. http://bit.ly/MWlbzJReplyDelete
