The metal fencing in the picture for Quorn Row, Camberwell is made from reused WW2 civilian stretchers.

Wild's Rents in SE1 for the next installment?

Andrew

And then there's Little Britain's rival near St James Park, Petty France.  Maybe we should dig a narrow tunnel between the two and run model Eurostar trains through it :-)

Freddie

'Prince of Wales Passage' near Euston perhaps?

Manni

How about adding Uneeda Drive in Greenford to the list?
