Many people I’ve met have said when they heard the question being asked of me on the radio programme they said Charing Cross. And, of course, they are right. Me, I was a tad befuddled at that time in the morning on a breakfast radio show.
Last week I walked from Waterloo Station to Charing Cross. I studied the cross, and then looked for the plaque verifying that the cross was where distances from/to London are measured. Well, blow me down, no plaque. A check on walls on the Charing Cross Hotel and the Station, I found nothing. I then walked to pavement in the front of the station and cross, and there found a plaque [Different from the one pictured in Wikipedia]. Here are my photos [click on images to expand].
Can’t think of what’s the moral of this story. I’m sure there is one.
