As part of its occasional series of short films exploring overlooked or hidden aspects of the City, on 26th March, The Temple Bar Trust hosted a film premiere of ‘This City is made of Railways.’

The film was created by Court Assistant, Chris Williamson, who presented a fascinating short film examining the role which the railways have played in shaping the City of London. Starting with the Greenwich to London Bridge line in 1836 and concluding with the regeneration of the City around stations such as Liverpool Street. After the film, a lively conversation on London’s railways was hosted by Temple Bar Trust Chairman, Past Master, Peter Murray. Huge thanks to Chris for preparing such a fascinating short film – it was a privilege to attend the premiere.
