Model of St Paul’s Cathedral

Have you seen this model of St Paul’s Cathedral? I’ll admit it is not easy to spot as it is on the outside of Vauxhall Bridge and best viewed from a boat on The Thames.

Vauxhall Bridge opened in 1906 and eight larger than life-size female bronze statues were added in 1907. There are four facing upstream by Frederick Pomeroy (Agriculture, Architecture, Engineering, and Pottery) and four facing downstream by Alfred Drury (Local Government, Education, Fine Art, and Astronomy).

Downstream is looking towards the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye.

‘Architecture’ is the one for you want to look out for as that is the one with this small model of St Paul’s Cathedral. I say small but it must be about 2 foot long which gives you some idea of the scale of these statues.

Vauxhall Bridge is the only London bridge decorated with sculpture in this way. It’s next to Lambeth Bridge – one of the Harry Potter Film Locations in London.
