Four years on - a fitting memorial
Four years ago today scumbugs tried to rip the heart out of the best city in the world and the people that live and work in it. They failed. This memorial
unveiled today in Hyde Park is a beautiful and fitting tribute to the 52 people who were murdered on the morning of July 7th, 2005
The memorial, designed by architects Carmody Groarke
comprises a field of 52 closely spaced columns, each cast in stainless steel. They are arranged on a common grid, but are subtly separated into four groups, the number of columns in each corresponding to the number of deaths caused by one of the four bombs. I will have to make sure I put this little corner of Hyde Park, between Lover's Walk and Park Lane on my places to visit next time I am home.
