...But then, not so long ago, English
Heritage, or somebody, cleaned off
the patina of decades from the
Albert Memorial in Kensington
Gardens and took the colour,
charm and grandeur out of the
statues. They're now shiny white,
unromantic, sterile. Worse, the
whole of the base of the Albert Memorial, which includes these friezes all the way
round, has been permanently fenced off from the vulgar gaze of the public. You
can't get near to your own cultural heritage any more, to the band of sculptures
that I think are the only redeeming feature of the ugliest structure in London. The
pigeons that caused many of the problems in the first place, of course, can still
get in.
