80 Dragons on the Kew Great Pagoda

One thing we perhaps did not convey with our original post about dragons on the Great Pagoda at Kew Gardens is the sheer scale of the creatures, and their impressive density! We counted 80 dragons in total on this ten-storey building. They were first spotted in London in the late 1700s, but within a few years they had disappeared completely with various rumours about where this population had gone to. Some suggested monarchs had sold off their precious dragons to settle gambling debts. Whatever the truth of the matter, the Pagoda Dragon population returned to its ancestoral home much more recently, following the building’s recent restoration.
