Possibility

Looks similar to Physcia caesia (but don't think its soredia are green).

Thanks Phil

The green bits, on both Pimlico lichens were definitely "greener" than the rest of the lichen.
I do need to see a lot more lichens to make any positive call, and won't be able to get back for some time.
Took some pics at Kew yesterday but not very good; shall pick out the better ones and post asap.
