You don't see this every day...



I went for a wander today to celebrate the start of my holidays and decided to take a stroll up One Tree Hill from the top of which you can get a stunning panoramic view of the city. On the way I walked through Peckham Rye, an area of parkland where William Blake saw his first vision in 1769. He saw angels in the trees. I didn't, but I did spy something almost as good. The unprepossessing semi pictured above has a rather interesting history. The Blue Plaque on the front shows that Frankenstein's Monster himself was born here...



Who'd have thought that? He seems a bit less scary now...
