The Great Fire of London in 1666
Speaker: Barbara Askew
The Great Fire of London of 1666, which came only months after the Great Plague, devastated most of the City of London. 13,500 houses, 87 churches, 44 livery halls and many public buildings were destroyed within four days.

This lecture examines the devastation wrought by the fire, looks at the inspirational plans put forward for the rebuilding of the City and explains how the reconstruction which followed changed the face of London for ever.
