An exceptionally atmospheric alley that burrows its way through history and deep under modern London.
This little courtyard set back from the street has an obscure history, but is thought to have a late medieval origin.
Officially, this charming little alley has no name, but I am naming it Fernsbury Street Alley, as it was almost an extension of Fernsbury Street itself.
Next to St Alfege's church in Greenwich is a passage, not surprisingly named after the church, but that's a relatively recent name for a much older path.
This is a rather bland, if convenient footpath in Bethnal Green, but one that marks ancient boundaries.
This is a relatively new addition to the streets of London, being a result of post-war clearance, and some recent upgrades.
This insignificant little alley nonetheless has on its corner a relic of Spitalfields Jewish past.
This narrow picturesque alley in Spitalfields looks old and is indeed old, far older than it looks.
One of the best hidden of the City's alleys can be found through a small gap in a corner laying within a small maze of other alleys.
This wide and ancient alley is today a haven of heritage next to the bustling and crowded Commercial Street.
