Where's That Then? No 47

I do hope regular readers aren't getting too tired of Unmitigated England being an Unmitigated Quiz at present. But just think about it as leaving the central heating on low so that the house doesn't freeze up. The New Year (I've just decided) will be the start of all the usual things you've come to expect and been deprived of: corrugated iron, fag packets, Vimto bottles etc. With a Christmas Special of course. In the meantime, how about this?

On top the dome looks like an observatory, plus the ship at the very top leads me to think of Greenwich, but somewhere behind the main observatory?

That's actually the Royal Observatory so I guess W and E have it - sort of. I'm shocked to see the bloody anti-pigeon netting has got out of hand again.My campaign to rid our built environment of this menace is under way as I write.

Knowing the place quite well I thought - I'm sure there's a bloody great sign on the wall saying "Royal Observatory Greenwich" - clever Peter's been at the photosop - upon closer inspection I see he hasn't at all- the sign is indeed there.

Love the weather vane.

Well done Williamandemma. It is indeed the Victorian observatory at Greenwich. Not as classy as the one on the top of the hill though.

Please keep going, Peter.

May I second (or third) that? We need corrugated iron, traditional lettering, and pleasing decay (whether in paintwork or in cheese).
