Walk with old maps round the almost lost neighbourhood between Clerkenwell and Shoreditch. We find several lost burial grounds and reminders of long closed hospitals. The only church left is the one the parish never wanted. Surviving in the middle of a 21st century development we walk a distinctively shaped street dating back to the 1720’s. Across from the site of where Marie Lloyd gave her first performance we find fragments of the Workhouse that enable us to tell it’s story.

Walk with old maps round the neighbourhood that grew around the site of a 12th century leper hospital. We see what Thomas Neal did with the last field, find a Huguenot Chapel and discover 17th century houses where you least expect to see them. There is a parish plaque, ghost street signs and a plaque that commemorates St Gile’s Workhouse being used during the Great War as the first Military Hospital to be staffed entirely by Women.
