Parts of the city of London date back many centuries however this part of the city of London, in a small triangle we will cover has been transformed since then, with few of the buildings that could have been seen at the beginning of the 1980s still standing. Amongst these of course is the 15th century Guildhall, which was almost obscured from view in the 80s. The yard was opened up in the 1990s and a number of new buildings have sprung up along the western end of Gresham Street. The walk will cover a range of rock types seen as building stones and will end up just North of St Paul’s Cathedral.
