Site: Alice and Quintin Hogg (1 memorial)

W1, Portland Place

Portland Place is an extremely wide road for London, and was built like that in the late 18th century. The Duke of Portland owned all the ground in this area including Foley House which used to be where Broadcasting House and the Langham Hotel are now. His tenant in this house, Lord Foley, insisted (via an Act of Parliament, no less) that any new developments should not ruin his view of (what would become) Regent's Park and Hampstead and Highgate. Solution - a wide road, the exact width of Foley's House, 125 feet.

One of London's 'lazy' statues.
