Another in the series on City of London buildings that survived the Great Fire of 1666, and that still survive to this day …
The church of St Alphage London Wall was originally built a little to the north of its present location sometime before 1108, and moved to its present location, on the site of the dissolved priory church of Elsing Spital, in 1536. It was undamaged in the Great Fire, although it was substantially rebuilt in the eighteenth century, and further restored in the early twentieth. It then fell into disrepair, and indeed was partially demolished, following the merger of the parish with that of St Mary Aldermanbury in 1924, and was substantially destroyed during the Blitz, with only a partial shell surviving to this day.
The church is visited on various of our walks.
Further details of all our walks are available in the “Our Guided Walks” section of this web-site.
