London – Becket

It’s not only in Canterbury that Thomas Becket, the 40th Archbishop of Canterbury, is remembered.

Becket’s birthplace was just east of St Paul’s in London’s Cheapside – thought by some to be in Ironmonger Lane at the site of the Mercers Hall. It’s appropriate then that a sculpture of Becket has been located at the south eastern section of St Paul’s churchyard. It depicts the moment of his death.
