Special London Landmark Gets Floodlit
Wednesday 25th October 2017

The National Catholic Register reports:

Many of London's famous buildings, including the Houses of Parliament, St. Paul's Cathedral, and the Tower of London, are floodlit at night. They create a landscape that is world-famous, and the mellow glow of the light on old stones helps to give London its special atmosphere.

Now another building has been added to the list of those favored with this special treatment – and it's a very unlikely one.

The Church of the Most Precious Blood stands alongside a railway arch on the southern bank of the Thames, in the district known as The Borough. It was built in the last years of Queen Victoria's reign and is of brown and red brick – perhaps at first sight an unremarkable building. But it is visible from every train that hurries out of London Bridge station heading southwards. And it's at the heart of a thriving community, with a nightclub opposite, and a whole new range of cafes and restaurants nearby, some of them built into the railway arches.
