    Speaking of the Austin Friars and the 1200s and 1300s: that’s quite a contrast with Austin, Texas, where the oldest buildings go back only to the 1800s.

    Beautiful gate, and what a history behind it! Am curious why it was called the Dutch church (since this in London), do you know? Anyway, thank you for sharing such a treat!

    Very interesting. I haven’t heard of Wolf Hall. I’m going to check that out, thanks.

    Wow! You did a lot of research for this post! Love the history of a place that has been around for such a long time. I bet the gardens were magical.

      London is full of marvelous history. I used one source and the big job was reducing all of it down from 8 pages to 2. I was inspired by the Wolf Hall series. The portrayal of Cromwell was so complex and well done (see my link at end of post).
