Excerpt from Reminiscences of St. Clement Danes Church, Strand

HE Parish and Church of St. Clement Danes are intimately connected with the History of London, their situation is central, and no one can go from East to West by the Strand without commenting upon the large dimensions Of the building, which, like -ah island, is surrounded with roads most lively and busy with traffic It is difficult to assign a date when the first Church was built upon or near the present site, probably in the Ninth Century by the order of Alfred the Great (871 to who had driven the Danes from the City of London, and was desirous that those who were married to English women should settle westward and become Christians, to promote which the first edifice was erected. At that time it is conjectured from ancient engravings, and comparatively recent excavations, that the Church enclosure reached from Surrey Street to Temple Bar. On the south side was the Strand extending to the shore Of the Thames with the houses of distinguished noble men dotted here and there. On the north was Butcher's Row, a direct continuation Of Old Wych Street running up to Temple Bar and converging with the Strand at that point. Immediately on the same side were Holborn Fields, with the Bourne gently creeping eastward and uniting its meandering water to the Fleet, in due course merging into the Thames. Who knows whether the nimble trout once played in these streams and afforded amusement to the ?y-fishermen of a thousand years ago. The turf marking the precincts Of the Church yard would have extended from Temple Bar to Surrey Street, where human remains have been exhumed, also over the whole of the space to the west entrance of the present Church and eastward to the point of convergence of the north and south roads.
