Hidden City

". . .stepping behind the modern facades, or squeezing through narrow passes between vast glass ziggurats of 21st century commerce in search of a favourite Wren church or just somewhere quiet to sit and think, it is still possible to come upon something ancient or timeless, and to enjoy the precious thrill of discovering somewhere centuries old yet to the beholder all but unknown." So writes David Long about London's Square Mile.

. . .timber-framed buildings, little gardens, oases of food and drink, 'enigmatical entries' and 'Sphinx's riddles of streets'. . .
