A little tour of Blackfriars

Hi everyone,

Hope you’re staying safe and well in these strange times.

It’ll be a while until we can travel overseas. But the last couple of times I was in London, I made this brief video for readers of The Firewatcher Chronicles, so you can see some of the sites where action happens in the books.

I’ll post another one on mudlarking, and what we can find in the Thames (besides magical Roman rings) soon.

PS I just made it on my phone, racing around the laneways – it’s not going to win any Oscars! But hopefully it will help kids who haven’t been to London to imagine some of the places where Christopher and his friends race against time to fight fires and solve the mystery of the ring. And how you really wouldn’t want to fall in that river.
