All Hallows by the Tower

We visited an ancient church beside the Tower of London known as All Hallows. There was some original Roman rule in it… very tiny squares that must have been very labor intensive to install.

Unlike the large cathedrals, this church was quite simply decorated.

Statues of a family watching their youngest take their first steps (as explained in the sign below). This is near the entrance to the lower levels of the church.

This is a sample of Roman tiles. It is the floor of a home.

more Roman tile on the floor where we walked.

A lower level chapel. There were shadow people in the chairs…. that is, clear plastic cutouts…

A Saint perhaps….

A special lamp…

A different kind of chapel also in the lower level…

A tribute to the soldiers who ‘will not grow old’ so that we may.

Another tribute.

The pulpit.
