10 buildings that survived the Great Fire of London
The Great Fire of London destroyed over 400 acres of London, including 13,200 houses and 87 out of 109 churches. Tucked away in a small street in Farringdon, however, is a lonely survivor - 41 and 42 Cloth Fair. Built between 1597 and 1614, this house is sometimes described as the oldest in London. It may have only survived the fire because it was sheltered by the walls of a nearby priory. Picture: Alamy
