TSJ Issue Number 39 to be published this week

For a sneak preview of what's in store inside Issue 39 of The Tyndale Society Journal, check out the contents pages in our online abstract...

The Door that Saved Charterhouse in 1666...

The Original Chapel Door of 1666
Tyndale Society Members learned the virtue of fire safety at the Society's recent tour of the London Charterhouse...

On view was the original door to Charterhouse Chapel, which saved the building from destruction in the Great Fire of London in 1666.

The fire burned for four days and nights and by the time it was extinguished had claimed 80% of the city.

View our online album for more images from Brian Buxton's excellent tour programme - which also included:

St. Sepulchre Without Newgate
Burial place of the ashes of Sir Henry Wood, where we viewed the gruesome bell which was tolled the night before executions were scheduled to take place.

Stationers' Hall
This tucked-away City site - home to The Worshipful Company of Stationers & Newspaper Makers - features commemorative windows to William Tyndale, Chaucer, Caxton and Shakespeare.
