The Westminster Corridor is a convenient name for the group of districts which lay in a direct line from Westminster to the northern limits of Hendon, and it covered most of the areas now known as the West End of London, inclucluding Holborn, Soho, Covent Garden, the Strand, Pimlico, Chelsea, Knightsbridge, Paddington, Hampstead and Hendon.

This fascinating book examines the building of a small monastery on the edge of the Thames by the Anglo-Saxons, which in time became Westminster Abbey, and it explores the founding of the Abbey and the lives of its occupants and workers, as well as charting the growth of the Abbey and its increasing prosperity and importance within the settlement of London.

Includes several black and white photographs and illustrations, and 16 full page colour maps showing Anglo-Saxon London
