  • The Waldegrave Arms photo is incorrect. It actually has ridiculous floor to ceiling windows in flats that obviously don’t have enough walk space – resulting in “nice” views of rear of fridge, backs of cupboards…!. What a cheaply finished building & a real shame for Waldegrave Road residents as it drags down the look of this lovely road.

  • Agree with tcsjules, the Waldegrave looks appalling. After all the effort to preserve the frontage, the top section looks completely out of character – a cheap block of flats.
