Site: JMW Turner - WC2 (1 memorial)

WC2, Maiden Lane, 21

There is a rather strange modern architectural sculpture in this courtyard (you can see the top of it to the left of our picture, behind the people). We could discover no information about it... Until June 2012 when Discovering London suggests it might be a contender for "the ugliest statue in London".  Seems harsh when 'The Meeting' at St Pancras station is available.
