TQ3077 : Exit from Vauxhall Park

taken 7 years ago, near to Lambeth, Great Britain

Exit from Vauxhall Park
Exit from Vauxhall Park
Vauxhall Park was opened in 1890 by the Prince of Wales on land that had been bought for property speculation but instead was sold to the Metropolitan Board of Works after public action had sought its preservation. It was one of the first parks to be opened by the newly-formed London County Council. A number of houses originally stood on the site of the park. A prime mover was Octavia Hill, one of the founders of the National Trust. This is the exit at the north-west corner on to South Lambeth Road. The tower on the left under construction is The Tower, One St George's Wharf which will be one of Europe's tallest residential towers. The building with the unusual roofline to its right is the residential development at St George Wharf.
