Sacred Markings at St Magnus The Martyr

By Janeslondon
St Magnus The Martyr on Lower Thames Street sits at the northern end of Old London Bridge.
There are some interesting things in the churchyard including a commemorative plaque and a piece of Roman wood.
I really like the worn carvings and tombstones that today form a courtyard floor – they look especially good after the rain.

London Bridge was re-built slightly to the north meaning the church and its garden are now rarely visited – please do make the effort.
There is a staircase down from the bridge and the Thames Path to Lower Thames Street.
At the exit, underneath London Bridge, you'll find a rather unattractive doorway to what used to be a public toilet. Yuck!
