18th of February 2015. A route running around the historical tallest buildings in London in date order. 20 miles.
|Old St Paul’s Cathedral||1310||493ft|
|St Paul’s Cathedral||1710||365ft|
|Battersea Power Station||1939||370ft|
|Post Office Tower||1962||581ft|
|One Canada Square||1991||771ft|

Crystal Palace Transmitter was excluded as not a “building”.
Amazing to think the original St Paul’s Cathedral [burnt down in the Great Fire of London] was not surpassed in height until the 1960s. NB. We were obviously only able to visit the present day cathedral.
