Next time you visit Borough Market, take the time to walk further south towards Elephant & Castle (don’t panic, you don’t have to actually go to E&C) and take in the delights of Trinity Church Square. Improbably built by Trinity House, the body responsible for inshore navigation & safety in the 1820’s, it has to be the most complete and impressive square in South London, if not the whole of London. Most of the properties in the square, are still owned by Trinity House and it’s fairly difficult to find a complete house for sale on freehold. I guess this explains the price of the odd one that does come up for sale. But without question, if I had a spare £1.9m knocking around, I would buy a house here. Imposing town houses in a relatively untouched early 19th century square are pretty rare, and being so close to Borough & London Bridge would be more then handy for a cabbie – don’t you think? So below are some of the photos I took on our visit, as with most of my posts there are more photos on my Flickr photostream.
