The Great Fire of London – Where It Really Got Started

This is David’s third and final scene-setter for London’s Burning, Simon’s Virtual Tour of the Great Fire of London. It’s flecked with fascinating sidebars – the spark that got across the Thames and set fire to a stables in Southwark, the Inn in Fish Street Hill that caught fire, the hugely destructive fire on London Bridge (why they were both lucky and unlucky with that fire). But chiefly, this podcast focuses on the point where the three armies of flames converged, the place where the monster fire really started (hint, it wasn’t Pudding Lane).

Here’s the link to London’s Burning, Simon’s Virtual Tour of the Great Fire of London.
