The remains of the Whitefriars Monastery from the 13th century had been buried for centuries. A hidden cellar is all that remains of the monastery. The Carmelite Order of the White Friars (named for their white cloaks) once owned a large stretch of land between Fleet Street and the river Thames. Post dissolution of monasteries, the crypt was converted into a coal cellar. It eventually got buried under centuries of reconstruction and was unearthed in 1985 to be restored in 1920.
