We were taken to admire Brockwell Park this afternoon which is not something I would normally have thought of doing. But it is surprisingly atmospheric, windswept and on the first hill outside London, halfway between Brixton and Norwood, with views north east towards the city and south to Crystal Palace. The hall at the top was originally the seat of John Blades, a glass merchant, and its park bought by the LCC in March 1891 as an urban amenity, which indeed it is.
