There is a letter int he Telegraph this morning from Henry Oliver, Head of Policy (Planning & Local Government) Campaign to Protect Rural England.

He lives in SE1, in 'a 7-story block of flats in Bermondsey... These flats...enjoy less than 2 minutes' walk away a range of shops, excellent public transport and a large & beautiful park with a lake graced by a wealth of urban wildfowl.'

I realise I'm less observant than perhaps I ought to be, but where in SE1 (or within 2 minutes' walk of SE1) is a large & beautiful park with a lake graced by a wealthy of urban wildfowl?

Southwark Park perhaps?

Large but (with the exception of Chumleigh Gardens) not beautiful.
Pond (not lake) graced by wealth of urban litter.

Living in a high density block of flats of well over 20 dwellings per acre, thus preserving what is left of rural England. (Nothing in the SE!)

Wherever he wants to, of course. It just struck me that it might be difficult having any credibility amongst the people who actually do live in the countryside (and whose surroundings his body is trying to protect) if you live in unrural Bermondsey

But maybe he goes to the City Farm a lot
