Peace and Tranquility.

BLACKFRIARS is bang in the middle of one of the busiest party areas and Chinatown,right in the city centre.Built in 1250,by Franciscian Monks,with the city walls going through in 1262(foreground). After many years of wanting to knock it down,in 1974 the council finally decided to save it.Now housing craft shops and restaurants,it was re-opened in 1981 by the Queen Mother.Go here for TWO MORE VIEWS

Nice shot. Incredible to think they wanted to knock it down - maybe to build a car park. Looks a really nice place

Wow, this looks so nice and calm. And this in the middle of the city center. I would have thought this is outside in the country side.
