Anakana Schofield – Author of Martin John and Malarky

Two snips from a mildly curious topographical book I am reading on London by William Macrie: In a section called What is London? this:

“The Elephant and Castle is said to be the geographical centre of London”

Who knew? Certainly not me when I lived precisely there. I always thought I was living in the deep South. There was also a description of Southwark Cathedral surrounded by Borough Potato Market insisting this gave it the “human touch”

Tomorrow I’ll give you the classic part about the healing properties of London water. (I think he’s referring to tap water, not random puddles)
