23: The London Stone near Cannon Street Station

The London StoneJust opposite Cannon Street station is an empty building due for demolition, and at pavement level, is what appears to be a small cage which contains a lump of limestone. No-one really knows the origin of this 'London Stone' but it has survived through the centuries one way or another, and looks set to continue to do so as it shortly gets moved to a new temporary home at the Museum of London
