Today we enjoyed a special treat. As part of a guided walk of the St Paul’s to Guildhall area plus Wren churches in these environs, we focused strongly on Temple Bar. The reason for this was to celebrate Sir Christopher Wren’s 380th birthday, which was yesterday. By now I know this area quite well and furthermore, the weather today was filthy. The temptation to snuggle down on the sofa under a duvet with a good book was strong indeed. But who could resist the opportunity to penetrate Temple Bar itself? We popped up there for tea and coffee before the walk.
Many thanks to London Historians member Tina Baxter for making this happen.
