If you were to tell even the most seasoned of Londoners that their beloved city has a second St. Paul’s Cathedral, they would think you were “aving a larf!” Or, for those not so fluent in the local dialect, they would think you were joking and they certainly wouldn’t be alone.
Although for more than a century Vauxhall Bridge in central London has been harboring that very secret. A secret so closely guarded that thousands of pedestrians and vehicles pass by every day, many completely oblivious to its existence. Hidden-in-plain-sight, attached to one of this busy bridge’s piers, is a clone of Sir Christopher Wren’s glorious 17th-century architectural masterpiece.
