In 1666 London was devastated by the Great Fire, which gutted over 13,000 houses, over eighty parish churches and St Paul's Cathedral. Bob Jones has set out to discover the original structures and streets that survived the Great Fire and can still be seen today. This book maps, describes and illustrates what remains of the City of the Black Death, the Peasants' Revolt, the Reformation, the Civil War, and the Great Plague; the City of Chaucer and Shakespeare and Pepys. Discover the Roman ruins buried beneath Cannon Street Station, the seven parish churches that survived the blaze, the drinking establishments still open for business, and much more.
