A most interesting history and picture documentation of Temple Church: The Hidden Church Founded by the Knights Templar
The term “hidden gem” gets bandied around a lot in relation to all sorts of places in London – bars and restaurants, museums, galleries and historic buildings. It’s a bit of an overworn phrase, but the subject of today’s post definitely fits the criteria for a hidden gem: small and off the beaten track, pretty and perfectly formed.
Through a little gateway on Fleet Street lies the Temple, the inner sanctum of Britain’s legal profession. It’s a curious name – one that always intrigued me when I was younger, going through Temple Station whilst on the District Line and wondering if there actually was a temple there. There is no temple, but amid the chambers of barristers is a little old church that has a history going all the way back to the Knights Templar.

Hello to everyone!
This will be short but I want to thank everyone for their good thoughts, best wishes and prayers.
Since March, it has been something of a go. Not all bad. I hope to be back writing soon. Cardiac Rehab is going well. The doctor says I am doing remarkably well.
2 days ago was my three month anniversary for open heart surgery. The scars are healing physically but putting my life back mentally is a challenge. I have to remember to go slow!! This time next year, the doctor says, I should be much better, maybe never 100% but much better.
I found a family that I thought I lost years ago. I found a deeper faith in God. I found friends I never knew I had.
All I can say is a deep felt thanks and I WILL be writing again soon!!
To celebrate, I am making “The Wolf’s Moon” e-book FREE on Amazon FRIDAY THE 13th and again on SATURDAY THE 14th of September 2013. Please click on the book to go directly to AMAZON. ENJOY and thanks again!
