Temple Church: the hidden church founded by the Knights Templar

A most interesting history and picture documentation of Temple Church: The Hidden Church Founded by the Knights Templar

Flickering Lamps

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.

Booksigning at The Harney Mansion: A Haunting Good Time!

On September 27, 2014 I participated in a book signing for “The Wolf’s Moon” at The Harney Mansion in Sullivan, MO. 

This was the historical home of General Harney during the Civil War. 

This area is rich in history from the times of The Civil War.
