If you find gold, it’s the Queen’s

Great piece in South London Today reviewing Neil Rhind’s new books “Walking the Heath” and “Greenwich Revealed”:

The book includes the only known surviving image of the medieval St Alfege Church in Greenwich Church Street and some buildings which still exist in the town.
The authors believe that architect Nicolas Hawksmoor who designed the current St Alfege Church had a hand in the drawings which languished in the archive of the Earl of Pembroke at Wilton House, Wiltshire.
Walking the Heath by Mr Rhind and Blackheath Society member Roger Marshall, covers sights such as the Vanbrugh Pits, the Paragon, Eliot Place, Whitefield’s Mount, Eliot Pits, Dartmouth Terrace and The Point.
