Our Friday walks – “London Wall” in the morning, and “Tower to Temple (Heart of the City)” in the afternoon – relate closely to Bob’s book ‘The Lost City of London’, published in October 2012.

IT’S NOT JUST THE OLD
OTHER STATUES AT ST DUNSTAN-IN-THE-WEST
The late sixteenth-century statue of Queen Elizabeth I that stands above the entrance to the vestry is unfortunately obscured by scaffolding (until autumn 2013). The late sixteenth-century statues of the mythical founder of London, King Lud, and his sons Androgeus and Theomantius, can, though, still be seen, in the porch. The aforementioned statues of Lud and of Elizabeth stood above the entrance to the City at Ludgate until it was demolished in the late eighteenth century, the site being marked by a Corporation Blue Plaque on St Martin Ludgate (toward the top of Ludgate Hill).
