Hi all,

Just passed through Mitre Square, and sad to see it now almost completely paved over....no more cobbled Square remains.

Such a shame. Even though it had already changed a lot since 1888, there was still a remarkable atmosphere about Mitre Square; I wonder if that will survive?

Hi Sam

You can't help wondering. I was in London in September of last year and did the JTR walk. To be honest I was expecting Rumbelow like the previous year but it was someone else. Mitre Square was half covered in scaffold and I thought about how much the buildings would begin to encroach.
One day the Ten Bells will be a Poundland!

I took a friend on a tour round the murder sites at the weekend, or as close as you could get. Mitre Square is sort of now open...

Just been there myself, very sad that it's pretty much "gone", nothing you can get any sort of ambience from anymore. In fact I'm curious to know whether indeed it's still called Mitre Square as there's no sign stating as much?

..."Public realm enhancement"?

A new low for consultant-speak!
