7. Looking for the wall

Route of the London Wall

Looking for the wall reminds me of a similar attempt to find the Berlin Wall twenty years after much of it had been removed. I have spent the past two days walking from the Museum of London down by St Paul’s Temple Bar and Ludgate Circus as the landscape slopes towards the river at Blackriars. I now have an excellent book Walking London Wall by Ed Harris, to guide me. This map brings together most of the buildings that feature on the route and offer my first attempt to work out the exact route.

The map can be viewed with place names here.
