Old London: Charterhouse to Holborn
Alderman Press, 1987 - 196 trang
This volume of Old London has legal overtones. Starting at Charterhouse - the site of an old Carthusian monastery, which was built on land that had been used as an enormous burial ground during the plague of 1248, called Pardon Churchyard - it progresses to the infamous Fleet Prison and historic Newgate, also used as a prison and on to the Old Bailey, with accounts of many famous trials that have taken place there. The Fleet River, now safely channeled underground, is traced from its source in Hampstead.
