St. Dunstan’s, Stepney

Most weekends I walk through the churchyard of St. Dunstan’s, Stepney, the medieval church which was at the heart of the first village on the cattle road out to Essex.   It has exceptionally fine, early Victorian ironwork railings, which somehow escaped being removed in the war.   An inscription states that they were the work of Deeley and Clarke in Whitechapel, a local iron foundry based at Buckle Street.   They were installed in 1844:
