Video: A Fascinating Look At The History Of Smithfield

As it prepares to move to a new home in Smithfield, the Museum of London has made a series of films looking at the history of the area.

This one takes a look at St Barts and its pioneering medical work, as well as the fascinating story of the Charterhouse and the grisly past of Smithfield as a site of execution, before becoming a market.

You can see designs of the forthcoming new museum here.
