Liverpool Street Station (10)

I sometimes slightly despair about what is happening in some parts of the City. Saving Liverpool Street Station was one of the great victories of the 1970s conservation movement, led by John Betjeman. Now, Network Rail, or whoever now owns the stations, plan to use it as the deck for a vast skyscraper, thereby completely destroying its surviving Victorian character.

The thing which is pretty unbelievable is that they held a public consultation in which they showed only half the project – the bottom half, of course. This is so fantastically disreputable that the City planning department should simply ban the developers from ever submitting a project for consideration again.
