    St Alfege is the Anglican parish church in the centre of Greenwich. There has been a church here for over a thousand years, dedicated to the memory of Alfege, the Archbishop of Canterbury who was martyred on this site in 1012. The church has connections with many famous figures in British history, including Henry VIII, Thomas Tallis, General James Wolfe, and John Flamsteed. The present church (which replaced an earlier medieval building) is nearly 300 years old. It was designed by Nicholas Hawskmoor, Sir Christopher Wren's famous pupil, and is one of the churches built under the Fifty Churches act of 1711. The interior contains many fine examples of 18th century craftsmanship and design.

    This was an opportunistic visit on what started out as drinks and dinner with some friends in Greenwich. I spotted the scaff from the bus, sent a couple of quick messages out to Sentinel and Gabe and we were up top 3 hours later. A nice place to chill for a couple of hours with beers and the views weren't too bad either. :D

    Cool report and really nice shots :thumb

    Took a detoured wander past here on my lunchbreak yesterday. An impressive building from below but looking at your pics it's even better up top. London always looks far nicer at night!
