Plaque: London Wall Walk - 7 - Bevis Marks
No visible bit of the Wall that we could see. On our London Wall page is a link to a site that has photos of more of these nice blue-bordered plaques.
Site: Bevis Marks Synagogue (3 memorials)
EC3, Bevis Marks
The Synagogue, accessed through the arch, is in the courtyard behind this office block, with its front door facing north-west. On the front of the Synagogue is the war plaque and above the door: a plaque giving the date of the building as 1701 and a clock dated 1858. Sacred Destinations has photos showing all this. The London Wall plaque is to the right of the entrance to the courtyard, in the covered arcade over the pavement that you can see in our photo.
The courtyard also used to house the congregation’s school, almshouse and orphanage. The synagogue survived WW1 and WW2 unscathed but was damaged in 1992 by the IRA Baltic Exchange bomb. Spitalfields Life have many photos of the inside of the synagogue and Sephardi has a full history.
