London Footsteps

Smaller Default Larger


Sir John Cass has links with education in London going back 350 years and the anniversary of his birth is celebrated on Founders’ Day with a procession of 30 pupils from their school in Jewry Street to St. Botolphs-without-Aldgate. This will be part of the walk around WHITECHAPEL – an area on the fringe of the City which has a dark and dangerous history. Emigrants have come here for centuries and their history is explored on this walk and we briefly refer to that notorious episode in the 19th century – the Jack the Ripper murders.
