tyburn and king's scholars passage

A post on the London My London blog, by Vic Keegan, about the Tyburn river being exposed by the works going on near Victoria, across the road from Bethan's work, with an aerial photo showing it. Among the interesting things mentioned in the article is the reference to 'King’s Scholars’ Passage so called because the privileged scholars of Westminster School were allowed to bathe there hundreds of years ago'; the Passage is an alley behind the backs of buildings between Vauxhall Bridge Road and Carlisle Place, which we sometimes walk along to the Queen Mother sports centre.
