Farmer's market

Happily the weather held out for the spectacularly successful London Architectural Biennale family weekend in the Farmiloes Building off St John Street in Clerkenwell/Smithfield. They said it couldn't be done, but a group of cows and calves did indeed arrive for public display, walked down the grassed bottom end of the street, and enjoyed substantial hay supplies in the June sunshine. Biennale organiser Peter Murray initially wanted to drive the cattle from Rab Bennetts' office further up the street, an office which was originally an overnight cattle 'hotel'. But in the spirit of keeping London dull, the authorities told him that if he did so, he would be arrested and the cows would be confiscated. The police and council warned him that he would need insurance to cover his personal liability for anything untoward which happened; and of course it took months to organise the (modest) road closure.What didn't happen on the day was collection of rubbish bins first thing in the morning, promised by Islington council.
