St. Anne’s, Limehouse

I was asked to give a talk tonight to the Limehouse Community Forum in the church of St. Anne’s:  a great pleasure, for me at least, to be inside its barn-like interior, trying to imagine what it was like for an early eighteenth-century congregation when Limehouse was no more than a small riverside community clustered round the boatyards.

It’s not often that I see the church in the evening:-
