Subject

St. Olave Hart Street Church

Description

Of the remaining medieval elements in St. Olave Hart Street Church, the western wall of the crypt is one of the oldest, dating to c. 1270. In 1853, the crypt was filled in when the practice of crypt burial was discontinued by law. However, it was restored in 1953 (keeping the original western wall) and made into a chapel that is still used today for special occasions.
