"London Churches"
Wednesday 20 January 2010
Waterloo station concourse, by Platform 4, 10.30 am

12.00 at Pub: Ye Olde Watling,
29 Watling Street, EC4M 9BR

Madeleine & Tony Wright

On this walk we cross the bridge and walk to Fleet Street, where we will visit the church of St Dunstans in the West, and St Brides Church on Fleet Street. Across Ludgate Circus and up Ludgate Hill, stopping for lunch at Ye Olde Watling.
After lunch we cross St Paul's churchyard into Watling Street, and then visit two churches, both with some claim to fame:

  • St Stephen's Walbrook (behind Mansion House), which is the church where the Rev. Chad Bara founded the Samaritans;
  • All Hallows, which has an effigy of Rev. Tubby Clayton, who was awarded the Military Cross in WWI, and who founded Toc H.

We then continue through Trinity Gardens by the Tower of London, past the memorial there to the merchant seamen who were lost in the Falklands War.
We then return home via public transport.
