St. Sepulchre's Church

St. Sepulchre’s Church is located on Holborn Viaduct in London, near the Old Baily. It is also called St. Sepulchre-without-Newgate or Church of the Holy Sepulchre. It formerly stood just outside of the city wall near Newgate. It is associated with St. John’s College, Oxford. It was named during the twelfth century Crusades St. Edmund and the Holy Sepulchre, referring to the church in Jerusalem, though the name was later shortened. It was rebuilt in the fifteenth century though badly damaged by the Great Fire of London in 1666. On display is a handbell purchased in 1605 that was rung to mark an execution at Newgate. The tower bells would also be used to mark and announce executions at the Old Bailey and Newgate.
