If you happen to be visiting the vicinity of Liverpool Street station, Bishopsgate, be sure to check out the St Ethelburga’s Bishopsgate church (also known as “St Ethelburga-the-Virgin within Bishopsgate”), for it is simply awe-inspiring. Designated a Grade I building within the Statutory List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest, it suffered quite a few times since the Great Fire of London. In 1993, it was severely damaged by an IRA bomb but it did not refrain from rising from its ashes – it was rebuilt and reopened as a Centre for Reconciliation and Peace. Affiliated with the Church of England, the centre organises a 10-kilometre walk each year which links two important landmarks: Barking Abbey and St Ethelburga’s Centre.
