The Great Fire of London in 1666 was the greatest catastrophe of its kind in Western Europe. A total of 13,200 houses, 87 churches and 44 of the City of London's great livery halls were destroyed. In this comprehensive account, the author examines the background to 1666, events leading up to and during the fire, the proposals to rebuild the city and the progress of the 5 year programme which followed.
