Leadenhall Market – City of London

Having never really had a stroll around the City of London it was quite a surprise to find this Victorian market sitting amongst the prominent, modern high rise buildings.  The market, which dates back to the 14th century, is surprisingly quiet during the weekends, as like much of the immediate area is closed until the hustle and bustle of business returns on Monday morning.  The very unusual image showing the hanging books is by artist Richard Wentworth and is named the ‘False Ceiling’, which includes 1600 books.  This is a gem of a place and well worth visiting, particularly during the weekend.

  1. However, due to internal discord and irreconcilable differences
    of ambition we are unable tto continue as a touring entity at this
    time. The front waas wide open anyway that sitting
    inside felt like we were sitting outside. Low alloy steel
    includes elements like molybdenum, chromium, manganese, or nickel and improves tthe hardness of the steel.
