The Lucky Greenwich Gnomes

Benedict sent me a wonderful pair of gnomes, which will form part of my “alternative Greenwich Park walk” when I get round to creating it…

They are the Greenwich Guardian Gnomes, which, if you go at the right time of day, you may just catch peeking from out of their rain-hopper homes.

Tradition says that anyone who spots them can make a wish. Of course Tradition is less clear as to whether your wish will actually be granted – but hey – they’re gnomes and they’re lucky. Take a chance…

Here we have Mr Wicked and Mr Worried – but there are others too – Benedict wants to collect ‘em all – maybe we could start a craze like those card-swapping games you get in playgrounds…

If you’d like to find them for yourself, imagine you’re standing at the Blackheath Gate, looking in. On your left are the loos, but behind them are some random maintenance buildings. Check the rain hoppers by the gutters to see if you can see them. And don’t forget to make a wish…
