Brian Pigeon’s Guide to London – The Alternative Ledge and The Protective Ledge
Here are two great ledges in the North London area.
First off, a classic example of the Alternative Ledge:
Alternative Ledges tend to be brightly coloured low based ledges usually found on council blocks.
And this one is a good example of The Protective Ledge:
Protective ledges are usually found on buildings used mainly for corporate occupancy (i.e. those with a shop or restaurant downstairs where the owners tend not to use the upper floors).
As with this example, there are some that exist with an upper ledge. This type of ledge can be ideal as it’s totally protected and hard to view from street level.
However, this one is located in Kings Cross which isn’t so good night, particularly if you’re traveling with young ones, but it is centrally located and within easy access of the West End.
