John Rogers: City of London Churches Walking Tour Part 2 – Haunted Churches

26/11/2021

Interesting videos about London, and elsewhere, from London-based film-maker and writer John Rogers, author of This Other London – adventures in the overlooked city http://bit.ly/1tQS301

His blog The Lost Byway http://thelostbyway.com/

Our walking tour of the churches of the City of London starts at St Vedast Foster Lane then takes in: St Leonard’s (lost church), St John Zachary (lost church), The Goldsmiths’ Garden, St Anne and St Agnes, French Protestant Church (lost church), St Botolph Aldersgate, Postmans Park, St Bartholomew’s Hospital, Smithfield, St Bartholomew the Great, and finally St Sepulchre-without-Newgate. We also find a beautiful section of Roman pavement in a hidden courtyard, explore some of the beguiling alleyways of the City of London, hear the story of William Wallace’s end at Smithfield and also John Rogers the Martyr and the vision of Rahere, Jester to Henry I that led to the foundation of the Priory Church of St Bartholomew the Great.
