The Roman City Wall set the shape of the City of London for the next 1600 years although throughout those centuries, workers continued to maintain it, using various building techniques. The parish churches religious houses and the street pattern (still visible in this area), became firmly established throughout the medieval and Tudor periods and - although London began to grow beyond the City Wall - the wall remained a defensive barrier.
Medieval London
By the 14th century, the City Wall had been strengthened by towers to the west, adding to the late-Roman towers to the east.
