One of the car boot sales I often go to is in Battersea, a couple of hundred yards from Battersea Park. Usually I take the bus from a stop near the venue, but a couple of weeks ago the indicator said there wouldn't be another bus for ages, so I decided to walk instead, and on impulse cut through the park. Which would be much more fun on a sunny day, but never mind. One edge of the park is by the Thames, and when I got there I found this, which I either didn't know about or had forgotten existed:

It's the London Peace Pagoda, built in 1985, which unlike many pagodas you find in parks is a real Buddhist shrine.

It's strategically placed about midway between Chelsea Bridge and Albert Bridge, and has a good view of both

I really must go back in brighter weather and get some better pictures.
