Flowers at Bedford Square

Climate Change

This blog follows on from my last post about the beautiful squares near where I work in Bloomsbury, Central London, very close to the British Museum. A rather weird thing has happened that I would love to share with you.


My favourite one is Bedford Square which as I mentioned before is sadly not open to the general public. On Tuesday 23rd March it was such a beautiful day that I made a detour on the way to work to take some photos for this blog. I had to walk round the outside railings and find suitable places to put my camera through the iron railings.The square nestles in the centre of rows of stunning Regency houses as you can see from these few shots:


Imagine my horror when I returned today to find the place swarming with police and the whole area sealed off with tape and no access allowed. Apparently a body was found at 9am this morning in the flower-beds, exactly where I took my wonderful photos just 48 hours before!

I can’t imagine how this could have happened as ?only anyone with a key can gain access. Sad to think that such horrors have taken place in such a beautiful place.

I really hope that calm will be restored to this scene very soon. By co-incidence I have just seen that there is a novel about a murder in Bedford Square .Think I might take my early morning strolls somewhere else for the next few weeks until the mystery is solved!
