Fenchurch Street is now virtually unrecognisable. Since the Victorian Railway Station built behind Crutched Friars, the outlook must have changed completely. Crutched Friars has a massive railway bridge built across it, and it is difficult to imagine how it must have looked in 1660. However, in one of the 'railway arches' is the Crutched Friars Pub. Tiny and welcoming... but avoid at lunchtimes when it is full of office workers.
Fenchurch Street stretches left to right across the middle of this 18th century map.
