General Notes
An extended version of the 2020 London City Churches walk to include evidence of the long lost churches. The lost London churches project lists 113 C. of E. places of worship many of which are no longer in existence. The aim of today’s expedition is to visit the extant churches whilst seeking evidence of those which have long since disappeared from the London skyline. How many can we find? The aim is to reach at least 100 so do not expect an early finish. Prior registration by email is required for this walk which is restricted to 10 participants.
