Monument Trip 26th September 2019

Today we went to the Monument of the Great Fire of London which was built to commemorrate the Great Fire. We had to walk up 311 stairs to get to the top it was alot of walking and hard work but the views of London were fantastic. We could see everything!! London looks very different now to what it looked like before the fire. This was because of the rules the King made when rebuilding the city. Buildings could only be made of stone or brick and they had to be built on wide streets and further apart to make it harder to stop fires spreading.

We also got to see Pudding Lane the spot where the fire actually started! We had lunch in the beautiful abandonded St Dunstan’s Church which no longer has roof due to a fire. We go to walk under and then across London Bridge in the sunshine to make our way back to school.
