To James Hatts (this site editor)

Trinity Church Square appears in the Michelin Guide as a one star attraction.

It has a historic church building, and a small garden square with an interesting old statue.

Now that it has been closed to through traffic, and is inside the congestion charging zone, it's easier to appreciate the Michelin Guide editor's point of view.

What does anyone think ?

Additionally, it was the subject of a BBC documentry "The House Detectives".

Does it deserve a place in the list of SE1 attractions, James?

I've often seen lorries with various orchestras' logos emblazoned upon them in attendance when walking home.

I've never been inside, what are they doing there - Is it used as a practice hall?

There is a web site for the church (now known as the Henry Wood Hall)

There is also a residents association which includes surrounding areas.

By the way, does anyone know how to embed web links in this forum?

Yes, put the URL in angle brackets < > and make sure it starts with http:// and it will come out like this:

http://www.tnra.net

There is another way too, but I can't remember at the moment.

I've checked the manual and this is the code

I have inserted extra spaces so the code shows up here:

[ url]http://phorum.org[/ url]

Creates a url that is linked.

[ url=http://phorum.org]phorum.org[/ url]

Creates a url that is linked.

[ url=http://phorum.org]phorum.org[/ url]


Links the text 'phorum.org' to http://phorum.org.

I'm told that the church is used extensively as recording studios for the likes of RPO. Also I've read in a London tourist guide that the statue in the gardens (of King Alfred) is among the oldest in London. That's all I know!

Just to say that Mr Hatts (the site editor) has not added Trinity Church Square to the list of SE1 attractions despite clearly being aware of this discussion.

I give up!!!

Sorry David - I did mean to answer your main question - honest!

No, I don't think Trinity Church Square should be in the Attractions section. That's really reserved for places like museums which have opening times and admission prices and phone numbers and websites.

What I do want to do is to completely revamp the Areas section to be much more structured and to have lots of little write-ups and pictures of the small enclaves like Trinity Church Square. It will happen eventually - it's a matter of finding the time. But rest assured it's on the long list of things to do for the site!
