Visit to The Undercroft at The Albert Memorial

Visit to The Undercroft at The Albert Memorial

Friends awaiting to descend ..

The chilly weather on March 23rd, 2015, did not deter the group of Friends who had signed up for a rare and privileged opportunity to explore the structural underpinnings of the famous landmark. In addition, we had the chance to examine at close hand the frieze of statues which border the upper terraces of the monument.

The Victorian brickwork and the multiple arches inside The Undercroft were impressive and appeared to be in excellent condition – Albert seems unlikely to fall off his perch any time soon.

The visit was much enjoyed by everyone and our thanks go to Tina Raymond for organising it and Andy Williams and his team at Kensington Gardens for enabling it to take place.

Thanks too to FHPKG members David Pollock and Hilary Younger for providing photos, more of which can be seen in the Photos section of the website.
