Shepherd's Bush :: TQ2280
Shepherd's Bush (also Shepherds Bush) is an area of west London in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. Although it is primarily residential in character, its focus is the shopping area of Shepherd's Bush Green, the north side of which is home to the Westfield shopping centre, the largest urban shopping centre in Europe. The main thoroughfares are Uxbridge Road, Goldhawk Road and Askew Road, all containing a large number of small and mostly independent shops, pubs and restaurants. The Loftus Road football stadium in Shepherd's Bush is home to Queens Park Rangers F.C..
The district is bordered by Hammersmith to the south/southwest, Brook Green to the south/southeast, Holland Park (and then Notting Hill) to the east, Willesden and Harlesden to the north and by Acton and Chiswick to the west.

Thames Water Tower, Shepherd's Bush
Claimed to be the world's largest barometer, this art installation disguises a steel vent pipe on the Thames Water London ring main. The idea for the barometer was thought of in 1993 by D.O'Sullivan and T. Doufa, students at the Royal College of Art. London architects and technology consultants Brookes Stacy Randall Fursden built the installation. The tower is intended to be filled with blue water which rises and falls according to barometric pressure, but at present is not working.
