On my way home last night I first noticed the inscription on the obelisk at St George's Circus
It has a date (that I can't remember), and the information that it marked a distance of 1 mile from (something very like, if not exactly like) "the court of the Palace of Westminster".
Does anyone know:
- why this is a significant distance?
- why would anyone build such a big obelisk to mark it (it must have cost a lot of cash and effort)?
- who built it?
- if this obelisk marks 1m in one direction, are there other similar ones in other parts of London?
All ideas gratefully received.
...if you press it, they will come.
