Sometimes, there are places that the Google car doesn’t venture. For example, into some private roads or when they can’t get access. It can be quite disappointing when your beautiful building hasn’t made it on to Google Maps Street View. Here’s an example using Torrington Hall, in St Albans.
Although the view from Street View is correct for the entrance to the building’s car park, the imagery doesn’t do the building the justice it deserves.
