St Alphage Church
Building From 1013 To 1923
Escaped the Great Fire. Demolished and rebuilt in 1774-7. Unused it was demolished in 1923 leaving part of the tower and the porch but then that was badly burnt in WW2.
There is a related ruin just to the south of St Alphage Garden, where London Wall Place meets London Wall. An information board there informs: "Here you are looking into the tower of the church of the medieval hospital of Elsyng Spital. William Elsyng, a London merchant, founded the hospital in 1330 to provide shelter, spiritual and physical care for London's homeless blind people. ... Elsyng's hospital remained part of an Augustinian priory until it was closed in 1536. ... St Alphage's parishioners bought the church to replace their own which was derelict."
