England - CSLI Visit to the Shard (October 2013)
On Wednesday 23rd October, CSLI members teamed-up with members of the Order of St Stanislas and St Pancras Rotary Club, for a pre-arranged visit to the Shard in London, the tallest building in western Europe.
The visit, arranged by GB&I Adjutant Steven Turner, afforded those attending with incredible 360 degree views for 40 miles. The Shard has 72 floors, rising to 310 meters or 1016 feet. The building incorporates world renowned restaurants as well as a 5 star hotel and extensive office space.
After the visit, the party made their way to The George Inn in Borough High Street, a coaching inn dating back to the 1400s. It was rebuilt in 1676 after a serious fire destroyed most of medieval Southwark.
A most convivial lunch was enjoyed by all. On behalf of those attending, the C-in-C warmly thanked the Adjutant for organizing a thoroughly enjoyable outing.
