(1491) After visiting Regents Park, it was then a relatively short walk to this location. Lots of folks queuing for either Madame Tussauds or Sherlock Holmes. Me? I was here to photograph a building that most people would simply walk straight passed!

The National Freehold Land Society, officially named the National Permanent Mutual Benefit Building Society to give it legal existence under the Building Societies Act 1836, was established by two Liberal members of parliament, Sir Joshua Walmsley and Richard Cobden, in 1849, joined a year later by John Bright. In 1856, it formed the British Land Company, which separated in 1878. Meanwhile, the Abbey Road & St. John's Wood Permanent Benefit Building Society was founded in 1874, based in a Baptist church on Abbey Road in Kilburn. In 1932 the society moved into new headquarters, Abbey House, at 219229 Baker Street, London, which it occupied until 2002. The site was thought to include 221B Baker Street, the fictional home of Sherlock Holmes, and for many years Abbey employed a secretary charged with answering mail sent to Holmes at that address. Mrs PKB has banked many times at this branch and coincidently moved away from London in 2002 when this building changed circumstances. Timeline for the building: 1932: Construction finished. 1970's: The building was mostly demolished and reconstructed. Only its tower and facade were saved. 2002: Abbey National moved its headquarters out of this building. Mid-2000's: The building was once again mostly demolished and reconstructed into residences. Again, this time only its tower and facade were retained.

TQ47 INT001 FLAGSTAFF. Original HQ of Abbey National. Most of this building has been demolished and redeveloped into apartments and shops. The central tower with the flagstaff on remains and its beautiful, with a lovely lighthouse carved into the front with the world Security beneath.
