Here is the view looking North along Silk Street, from the Barbican Podium, next to Cromwell Tower.
The buildings are, from left to right:
- the operations centre of a bank, the building with the arch
- The Jugged Hare, on the corner, with the pub sign
- The Brewery, the red-brick building
- Linklaters, a legal firm, on the right with the squarish windows.
On the sky line, the tall building is “HyLo” (or HiLo?) under construction on Bunhill Row, and the magnificent chimney of The Brewery.
In front of the chimney there is a whole superstructure on the roof of the Brewery which covers various industrial kitchen fans and ducts. These fans and ducts made a lot of noise, irritating neighbours. So last year they put a fence round, as you see in the picture in grey. Currently, both the Brewery and the Jugged Hare are closed, so it remains to be seen if the fence reduces the noise.
I drew this picture from the podium. Here is work in progress.
Here’s a rough sketch map, showing the viewpoint of the drawing.
