When out for a walk, I often take photos of things then research them when I get home. Here is a pocket park that I was to learn comes with a tragic ending.
A old Roman Catholic church was undergoing restoration when they uncovered something remarkable, and now the restoration is astonishing.
There is a delightfully cute little alley that has been in this part of Hoxton ever since it was all fields, and yet its history is a total mystery.
This probably shouldn't be in the list, as it's a bit too wide for an alley, but it has a former alley at the end, and a very nice bit of heritage in the road.
