The grounds of Winchester Palace on Clink street. next to the Golden Hinde
is being covered up, with sand and then concrete!
I suppose this is so that some developer can claim the site and build some ghastly building.
This area of incredible historical significance which attracts thousands of tourists is on its way out making way for a few yuppie wine sippers. Why does no one complain.
The Clink Prison museum, though not amazing, but again of historical importance, being on the actual site of 'The Clink' is also under threat from developers....yet another expensive restaurant! Write to the planning department at southwark council if you think this is a bad idea.
