Potters Fields may not be of widespread interest per se - but surely the key issue about this site is its relationship to Tower Bridge - one of the four of 'Britain's Best Buildings' according to the BBC series of that name (in autumn 2002?)presented by architecture pundit Dan Cruikshank.
'It quickly became, and remains, a symbol, an image, of the city where it was built.'
And that is why there is such widespread concern about the buildings that provide a backdrop to the bridge. It is not just residents of Tooley Street who think that Berkeley's proposals are completely over the top.
