London's Ley Patterns

The Primary Alignment - The Canterbury Line
Set out around London is a geometric pattern that includes triangles and alignments or 'ley lines' that generates London's sacred landscape.

This pattern needs to be understood at a number of levels. The first is based on the major alignment that links the great abbey of Canterbury in the east and Cistercian monastery site of Abbey Dore in the West. This alignment broadly follows the Roman Road of Watling Street and passes through the principle sites of Canterbury Cathedral - Rochester Cathedral - Greenwich - Bermondsey, Downing Street - Bulstrode Hill Fort - Gloucester Cathedral and Abbey Dore. As can be seen from the plan this line very neatly bi-sects London. This line is shown in blue on the primary triangle plan (see side panel).

Canterbury Line

For want of a better title I have called this alignment the Canterbury Line. It should be noted that it links the spiritual (Canterbury) and temporal (Westminster) seats of power in the UK.

The Primary Triangle
The second significant feature is a triangle of sites that links the follwing key places:

  • The Naval College - Greenwich (grid ref: 51°-29.008'N; 0°-0.346'W)
  • Caesar's Well - Wimbledon Common (grid ref: 50°-25.763'N;0°-14.475'W)
  • Boudicca's Mound - Hampstead Heath (grid ref: 51°-33.783'N; 0°-9.829'W)
    (See diagram in side panel).

If you wish to plot this triangle I would suggest that you do this in Google Earth. Key in the three points from the grid-references given above and then link these three sites together, through the line function facility. This will allow you to see the places that they pass through.

This triangle has internal angles of 50 - 60 - 70. The triangle's centre is located on an old mound called the Tothill Mound, which sadly has now disappeared. It used to lie just to the west of the Horseferry Road. The Canterbury line passes through the Greenwich point of this triangle.

The Secondary Triangle
This forms an equilateral triangle (internal angles 60 and sides equal) with the key points of:

  • Boudicca's Mound - Hampstead Heath
  • The Tower of London
  • West Brompton Cemetery

The base of this triangle links the Tower, Southwark Cathedral, the Palace of Westminster, Westminster Abbey and the West Brompton Cemetery plus a number of other key sites, some of which have now disappeared. That this triangle was understood and appreciated, at least until the 18th century is evidenced in the alignment of John Nash's Avenue in Regent's Park, which is very accurately aligned to the Boudicca's Mound and also exactly bisects the triangle.

There are many significant alignments or 'ley lines' that link key points within the capital, such as the alignment from St. James's Palace to the mound at Arnold Circus, which links the following sites:

St James's Palace - St. Martin's - St. Mary-Le-Strand - St Clement' Danes - St Dunstan's - Bart's Hospital (Priory of Bartholomew) - Holy Well - Arnold's Circus.

The length of this 'ley line' is 4.96km and was first mentioned by Alfred Watkins. Click here for PDF file of Strand Ley.
