Geocache Description:

So the story goes, , the area between Hyde Park and Knightbridge was split into two great estates, and a wall seperated them.

51.49904,000.16771

As Knightsbridge built up as a shopping destination, this wall made it difficult for residents of the Rutland Estate side of the wall (the Northern side) to get to the shops without a fairly significant journey around going up to Hyde Park, then around to Knightsbridge.

During World War 2, a German bomb landed nearby and the wall was demolished in the explosion.

Suddenly, residents could walk the 100 yeards to Knightsbridge without having to take the mile or so detour!

After the war, the locals petitioned to keep a right of way through the replacement wall – and hence the “Hole in the Wall” as it is known came to be. While I found it by random chance, it is actually quite heavily used by local people who know about it.

A small sign was put next to the wall in 1998.

A nano geocache was put there in September 2009.

I originally placed this cache on the north side of the wall. Have now moved it to the south side of the wall. I hope my coordinates are better
