St. Dunstan in the East

Happy Halloween! I figured this might be a good post for Halloween, all about The Great Fire of London and the Blitz. On the 13th of July, Stephanie and I went to St. Dunstan in the East. It was a Church of England parish church which was largely destroyed during the Blitz (the second world war) and the ruins are now a public garden.

I also wanted to walk around the Pudding Lane area, I would’ve loved to see what it looked like before the Great fire of London in 1666. We also went to The Monument, constructed between 1671 and 1677, it is the tallest isolated stone column in the world and was built on the site of St. Margaret's, Fish Street, the first church to be burnt down by the Great Fire.
