St Alfege's church, Greenwich
St Alfege's church, Greenwich
Designed by Nicholas Hawksmoor: one of the handful of imaginative churches this architect scattered across London in the early eighteenth century.
Occult fictions have been woven around Hawksmoor's churches, most notably by Iain Sinclair in his poem "Lud Heat" and the better-known novel "Hawksmoor" by Peter Ackroyd (see LinkExternal link ).
