8A1_Westminster Pier

Viewing instructions:
All images should be viewed in ‘full screen’ mode by clicking the ‘+’ icon in the top right of the image. When the image is opened in full screen mode you will see a scale bar at the bottom of each image. Use the scroll wheel zoom function and a ruler held against the screen to ensure the scale bar correctly measures 10cm when viewed at a normal viewing distance (approximately arms length). The size of objects in the view will then equate approximately to the size they would appear when viewed at the scene. This technique is known as ‘Real Scale’ viewing

LVMF – Westminster Pier 8
Westminster Pier is north of Westminster Bridge on the Victoria Embankment. One viewing location at the wall above the pier contains one assessment point. The Assessment Point is identified in the draft as 8A.1 and is the starting position for a Protected Vista towards Strategically Important Landmarks identified in the draft LVMF.

Viewing Location 8A

Assessment Point 8A.1:
Assessment Point 8A.1 is orientated towards St. Paul’s Cathedral. The position is identical to that described in the current LVMF guidance published in 2007.
The Viewing Corridor at the centre of the Cathedral is 80m wide, 10m wider than the 2007 guidance and encloses the Dome and Western Towers.
There are no left and right Lateral Assessment Areas, consistent with the 2007 guidance.
The Background Assessment Area has been widened from approximately 181m to approximately 207m.
The threshold height levels remain the same as the 2007 guidance.
