Random London Fact Of The Week
The small park in Brockley, south-east London, known as Hilly Fields is 175 feet above sea level at its highest point. This results in an excellent view in many directions – on a clear day you can see large swathes of London and Kent, and even some of Essex if you’re lucky (or unlucky).
