Looks strangely familiar

Looks strangely familiar, but . . . this painting, c.1735, by Pietro Fabris, is a north view of Westminster Abbey, showing a version of Nicholas Hawksmoor’s scheme 4 for com­pleting the western and crossing towers, from the Westminster Abbey Library Collection. From The Lantern Tower of Westminster Abbey 1060-2010 by Warwick Rodwell, the Abbey’s consultant archaeologist (Oxbow Books, £15 (Church Times Bookshop £13.50); 978-1-84217-9796). It gives in scholarly detail, with many illustrations, the historical background to the Dean and Chapter’s hopes of replacing the “stumpy little tower at the cross”, as the Dean describes it in his foreword (News, 3 July 2009), and will be used to inform any decision that is taken
