Plaque: St Antholin Church's railings

This plaque is on the low boundary wall, facing the pavement. The railings, proudly announced on the plaque, are no more, presumably removed along with lots of others as part of the war effort in the 1940s. Hansard reports some discussion of the term "derailinged" - concern over the abuse of the English language is nothing new.

Something else strange - it seems they repaved the churchyard two years before demolishing the church. Not the sequence of events we would choose.

EC4, Queen Victoria Street

Over recent years this church has acquired at least 3 modern plaques whose purpose is, we think, mainly to entice visitors inside the church so, peevishly, we are not including them.
