I went this morning to see the plans for the redeveloped Liverpool Street Station which I had read were being exhibited in a private room at the adjacent Andaz Hotel for two days. It turned out that the notice was published on Wednesday evening and Wednesday was one of the two days, so the plans have already been taken down. I suppose this is what the developer regards as a process of public consultation where in effect nobody has a chance to see and comment on what is proposed.
But I did manage to see and photograph the surviving railway sheds which will disappear under a tower block. They are spectacular and I urge you to go and look while you can:-

Did you get to see the Grecian Masonic Temple inside the hotel? We went on an Open House tour of the Andaz earlier in the year – figuring that we’d never actually get to stay somewhere 5 star so we might as well be nosey. The temple was unfortunately out of bounds due to renovation work but it was an interesting tour with much attention paid to the Terence Conran additions of 2000.
Gosh, no, I found it a bit too 5 star for me taste ! Charles
