Introduction
I rescued a very stubby article on Wikipedia about St Anne Brondesbury from speedy deletion; decided to add a picture to it; looked on Geograph and was surprised not to find one. The Queen's Park article was also lacking any pictures. So I popped over there and spent a couple of hours taking these photos.

It is nice to see that the Islamic Centre is apparently not embarrassed to give their address as The Stone Hall Synagogue. In fact those somewhat Muslim-looking domes date from when this was the Brondesbury Synagogue

Another Queen's Park
2007-09-05 17:28:58 Fr:tq2452_431 Sq:3010
The National Trust website and maps mark the area more prominently as Margery Wood. But this page on Geograph calls it Queen's Park and if you zoom in to a 1:5,000 map you will see that name apparently on part of the steep scarp slope of the Downs.
