London has many churches; stepping inside them is to enter a quieter more contemplative world. Often they are places of great beauty. This week on the way back from seeing the Fire! Fire! exhibition at the Museum of London, I decided on a whim to visit the church that sits just below the museum. St Botolph’s without Aldersgate was one of the few churches to survive the Great Fire but then sadly fell into disrepair to be replaced with the present building in the eighteenth century. My eye was taken by this beautiful Pre-Raphaelite Angel in a stained glass window.
