Don't you just love discovering hidden nooks and crannies in big cities like London? Nothing better than old cobbled streets, tumblin' down Tudor treats and ancient wattle and daub hiding down a snicket*.
For example this 800-year old beauty, captured by @mikro43 of Gatehouse to St Bartholomew the Great, Smithfield, London. (*a snicket is a narrow passage between houses; an alleyway!)
St Bartholomew the Great church was built around 1123 (not too long after the Tower of London!) and managed to survive Henry VIII’s reformation and even The Blitz largely intact. Luckily, the gatehouse’s location also saved it from damage from the Great Fire in 1666. The church itself has been featured in Four Weddings and a Funeral, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, Sherlock Holmes, and Elizabeth: The Golden Age.
