A LETTER TO THE TIMES
An excellent letter from Father Robin Burgess......
Sir, The Orangery at Kensington Palace is a masterpiece by Nicholas Hawksmoor (“Royal couple’s neighbours in revolt against mega-basement”, Apr 26). In recent times his admirers have had to work hard to restore his rightful reputation as one of Britain’s greatest architects and to save some of his finest buildings when they came under threat, notably Christ Church Spitalfields. How sad it is that the Orangery too could now be undermined by the planned basement for staff of the palace. We look to royalty to preserve our priceless artistic heritage, not endanger it.
