• A vacant waterfront lot is not paradise. Hence I won’t be giving the address a mention, although I will say it is in the heart of West London, and worthy of your attention. “Those roofs can be bought online from China” (Crouch End beach walkers are able to glance out over Bexleyheath, 21 November).

• It is enough for us that you’ve decided not to send your beloved the Wine of the Universe (Letters, 21 November). Can someone take over the Beatles moniker and start “The Wine of the Wrong Galaxy” (as Farrin Sutherland puts it)? That is the only cure for this pure Rob Roy with bad teeth.
