Back in UK for a short break to see family and friends, I wandered around Primrose Hill and Regent’s Park, in north London. It was a typical spring day, warm in the sunshine, cool in the shade and perishingly cold when the wind blew.
‘I have conversed with the spiritual Sun. I saw him on Primrose Hill’ – William Blake
One of the pioneers of photography, Roger Fenton (1819-1869), lived in this house according to the blue circular plaque.
The gardens in Regent’s Park were lovely, so I took lots of photos of tulips, daffodils and cherry blossom. But this blog is about doors, so here is the door to a quaint little cafeteria in the park.
Cumberland terrace overlooks Regent’s Park. There is a garden between the road and the houses, so I couldn’t get very close to show the doors. Instead, you get a bigger view.
The Danish Church looks rather like a mini-Kings College Chapel in Cambridge. The gnarly tree in the courtyard is amazing.
Finally, a bit of bathos – from the sublime to the ridiculous. Traditional South London food – eel and mash, or in a pie – here in Peckham, snapped from the top floor of a double decker bus driving past, hence the blurred photo. For more about this culinary delicacy, click here.
