Sorry, this item is now out of stock.

Beginning with Hawksmoor's churches ('the impact on 18th century sensibilities must have been like waking up to see Foster's Gherkin'), this is Ashley's second collection of London architectural and sculptural oddities. Here we have council railings made from Second World War ARP stretchers, Neasden's astonishing Hindu temple, the train station that time forgot in Queenstown Road, the mystery of Hope (Sufferance) Wharf revealed and, finally, the Gherkin itself - a brand new Peculiar.
