I doubt there is anywhere else in London with a wall this height. At about 500 ft above sea level. I don't know where the stone came from but the view when building this little wall in The Sky Garden (the walkie talkie) must have been impressive!
I just like stone!!

I grumble if I have to wheelbarrow stone through a house, I would have hated that!

Fixed the link on the post for you.

Thanks Nigel. I tried various combinations of the links in the photo, to get it appear in the post too. But I failed.... Thanks!

Many wallers - I''m one - often get to wall on the sides of hills with spectacular views over attractive countryside. I wouldn't normally consider townscapes to be spectacular. But then my sister took me up to the sky garden. Rather incongruous location for most wallers but I can't deny it was a spectacular view of the roofs of London and beyond.
