Just like the plants and vines that wrap themselves around the ruins, a powerful sense of the past clings to St. Dunstan, and it's a place with lots of stories to tell. On the day of my visit, there were quite a few people around enjoying the scenery, some of them taking pictures, but it was by no means crowded. (Unfortunately, one area was closed off as there was work being done to restore the stone, so I couldn't stand in the place where I captured the opening images for my original blog post on St. Dunstan.) Overall, it doesn't take too long to walk through the grounds.
For those of you who are in London, St. Dunstan in the East is a few minutes' walk away from Monument tube station, and is also close to Tower Hill (both on the District and Circle Lines). Just a stone's throw from the heart of the city, St. Dunstan is an unexpected hidden oasis, with lots of promising photographic opportunities.
I hope you like these images. Please let me know in the comments below if you enjoyed this post, and would like to see more London locations featured on Truly Madly Deeply Fashion. Thanks for dropping by! xx
