London before the Great Fire: An Exploration of its Medieval Architecture
While nine-tenths of medieval London was destroyed in the Great Fire of 1666, and a great deal more was demolished in the 18th and 19th centuries, a surprising number of buildings escaped the flames or demolition ball, certainly more than one might initially think.
Historian, town planner and conservationist Alec Forshaw explores the highway and by-ways of London to reveal some of the remarkable buildings that survive from the medieval period, from the grand to the humble, and what London was like 400 years ago.
