Kitchener's Bugle Posted 31 May , 2016 Share Posted 31 May , 2016 All Hallows-by-the-Tower is the oldest church within the "City" of London. Founded in 675, it contains inside a 7th-century Anglo-Saxon arch with recycled Roman tiles. The Church was heavily bombed during the Second World War and partially rebuilt during the 1950's. The incredible crypt and its chapels survived and are in themselves well worth a visit. The church also contains a wide and varied selection of War Memorials but the highlight has to be the incredible effigy to Lt Alfred Henry Forster.
