We're a bunch of healthy outdoor geeks in London. Every so often a group of us like to go off for a nice long walk. We did one on Sunday to visit five of the London churches designed by Nicholas Hawksmoor.
Hawksmoor is a very interesting person. Some people see his churches as "centres of malevolent energies" and even suggest connections with the Jack the Ripper murders. The five churches that we visited are certainly amongst the most impressive religious buildings in London and whne you're looking up at them you can't help feel that there's something slightly strange about them.
If you'd like to see for yourself, I've put my photos of the walk online.
If you'd like to know more about the churches, thne I thoroughly recommend Peter Ackroyd's novel Hawksmoor . In fact, if you're at all interested in the weirder side of London history then any of Ackroyd's books are recommended.
