My first thought when seeing the town on the hillside was that it looked kinda like Tolkien's painting of Hobbiton. I think it's the patchwork of colors in the fields that made me think of that, as well having a hill in the background.

Looks more like Saruman's version of Hobbiton, though.

Beautiful exploration and explanation of a building everyone knows...but sort of doesn't.

Funny how the size of the enclosure was such that they had to wait decades to get decent ventilation. I had no idea Westminster was on the forefront (and initial failure) of ventilation engineering.
