TQ4764 : The edge of London!

The edge of London!
The edge of London!
Taken from the viewpoint on Chelsfield Green (see TQ4764 : Chelsfield Green), the field in the foreground marks the start of the (literally!) green belt. The line of houses beyond is in "The Highway" in Orpington, and represents the start of a virtually continuous built up area for over 20 miles across London. No doubt without the introduction of the green belt after the second world war, this field would have been covered in housing, depriving us of this view across south and east London. Visible on the skyline towards the left of the picture is the City of London, and in the centre is Canary Wharf. Although out of the picture to the left, other landmarks visible from here include the BT Tower, the Wembley Arch and Crystal Palace TV transmitter. For the continuation of the view to the right see TQ4764 : View north from Chelsfield Green.
