Cabbie's cottage

It's strange how you can walk the same route day in day out without noticing things. I was thinking about how little there was to write about my journey from the tube station to work and there it was. I pass it every single morning, I knew it was there but I had never paid it any attention. The Cabmen's Shelter, a rural retreat in town. There is something about the concept and the realisation that is at once so very London, while at the same time nostalgic for the countryside. This one has a brass plate on it which says it was restored by the Heritage of London Trust . God bless 'em.
