Edgar Bateman - "If it wasn't for the 'ouses in between"

Semaphore House Location Between Esher and Chessington, Surrey, OS Ref TQ157647
Lens Olympus 50mm F1.8 +pl filt, +2/3 stp
Expose 1/60
Date 1997 March 31st.

A modest 52m above sea level did not give the Navy Semaphore chain a good view of The Admiralty (let alone 'Ackney). Being in telescope range of Coombe Warren, though, was enough.

Semaphore House is not open to the public.
