Also, if we're nitpicking, they've mistakenly used an illustration of the Heron tower on Bishopsgate in place of its residential namesake beside the Barbican (they clearly didn't use our Heron-spotting guide).

The prospect of central London encircled by high-end developments largely owned by the wealthy is a depressing one for the many who can't scrub together enough coin for a deposit. The impending disappearance of the sub-£100k London property further highlights the skewed nature of the market. And our own search for London's cheapest homes came to some sobering conclusions.
