Bradshaw & Cavendish Square

Mr Bradshaw does not mention Cavendish Square and yet the Cavendishes were closely involved with the families developing in this area. I went to look. The traffic roars around the square but it was built as a residential area and I wondered if I could recapture that calmer purpose.

There are two contemporary pieces: a statue made of scented soap which will melt away, leaving only a fragrance (nice idea), and a piece of steel which recorded my visit!
