Forewarned?



If you walk through the Aldgate underpass, you'll see an informative, if stained, sign. However, the information may not be of much value unless your last visit was over 15 years ago...

So, which is more shocking - that it hasn't been taken down yet, or that it has survived legible and intact for so long?

Hi Caroline! The City of London's website shows that this location is in fact open on Sunday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., but I wonder how current that is either! Did it look like the facility was derelict? All the best, Sarah

What's shocking is hat the convenience still exists at all! There used to be conveniences in both our local parks, which was really sensible, but they have both been closed down now.

It looks like it may still be usable, and the sign into the underpass claims it opens on Sundays, so it may be true! Presumably that's for the benefit of Petticoat Lane visitors, as the area is otherwise pretty quiet on a Sunday.

Hugh, it's really sad that they're closing so many of these. I suppose we're expected to use cafes etc instead, but it's a bit expensive and not always practical.

Bear in mind, though, that the date of the alleged restricted opening is 1st April. Arte we in booby-trapped territory here?

I did notice that - but other signs do indeed say Sunday only, and this one has plenty of authentic old stains!

Those oblong turquoise and grey mosaic tiles are so 60s!
