View from Norwood Park (1)
View from Norwood Park (1)
The park must offer one of the best panoramas in London. A plaque, sponsored by Network Rail and renewed in 2011 to commemorate the park's centenary, records that in 1986 the Greater London Council designated this a Protected Panoramic View. The view must encompass every prominent building in the capital from Vauxhall Tower (under construction) in the west to Canary Wharf in the east*. The latter's towers can just be made out on the far right, as can the central cluster in the City.
The tower in the foreground is Northwood House on Hamilton Road.
*The plaque records the following features: Millbank Tower, London Telecom Tower, Euston Centre, Victoria Tower, St Stephen's Tower, Centre Point, Highgate Ridge, Senate House, London Eye, Shell Centre, St John's Waterloo, Alexandra Palace, St Brides Fleet Street, Strata, St Paul's, St Mary le Bow, Guy's Hospital, Shard, Natwest Tower, Lloyd's of London, Heron Tower, Swiss Re Building, Christ Church Spitalfields, Tower Bridge, St Barnabas, St George in the East, Epping Forest, Dulwich College, Canary Wharf, and the HSBC Building.
