The church of All Hallows London Wall is dedicated to All Hallows (or ‘All Saints’) and the suffix ‘London Wall’ describes its location. This was needed to distinguish it from the churches of All Hallows Bread Street, All Hallows Honey Lane, All Hallows the Great, All Hallows the Less, All Hallows Lombard Street, All Hallows Staining (all now gone) and the surviving All Hallows Barking by the Tower – all of them small parishes in medieval London.
That city, now contained geographically within the modern City of London, was surrounded by a wall which had been built by the Romans around 200AD, and the church of All Hallows, in part, stands literally upon that wall.
All Hallows is the home of the Urban Youth Charity XL
