One of the things I’m enjoying about flat hunting (the only thing I’m enjoying about it) is seeing little bits of town I’d not seen before. For instance, this is the London Stone. Legendarily part of an alter built by the founder of Britain, Brutus of Troy, it is said that London itself is only safe for as long as the stone is safe. So with the same hysterical caution that we keep the Ravens of the Tower of London outdoors, we pop it behind a grill at the base of an office block on Cannon Street, with a little spotlight on it. If I move there I’m going to nick it, and see.

    I’d never heard of this – the city seems to have a number these little historical gems tucked away in unassuming places.

    Any joy on the flat hunting?
