Victoria Street . . .




. . . built in the late 1830's, has several listed properties on both sides; and St. Mary Magdalene, built two decades later, is also listed. I wonder if, at the time, the Victoria Street inhabitants objected to the loss of view? To modern eyes it looks near perfect, only marred by the bulk of the Bedford Hotel replacement looming up on the right.

St. Mary Magdalene has one of those "off the peg" spires, like St. John's in Palmeira Square, which are now suffering badly from weathering.
