Crown Court Church of Scotland

Inscription

Crown Court Scottish National Church, 1718 - 1909.

Site: Crown Court Church of Scotland (1 memorial)

WC2, Crown Court

The main entrance to the church is in Russell Street, built into the facade of the much later Fortune Theatre.  Behind this door there must be a rather long covered passage, effectively a tunnel, to the church.  Maps going back to at least 1799 show a passage from Russell Street up to the south-west back of this church.
