Smith Square oddity
There are a few oddities in Smith Square. The biggest is that the former Conservative HQ is now occupied by the European Union. Sitting on the grass outside the rather lovely church in Smith Square, I noticed this other oddity It's odd because it's in the road, unlike every other coalhole cover I've seen. I assume it's because the crypt (which houses a fine cafe) extends out under the road.
