BARBICAN, CITY OF LONDON. A view towards Lauderdale Tower on Phase II of the Barbican development site, showing the Church of St Giles-without-Cripplegate and the old city wall alongside the lake in the foreground.
Phase II of the Barbican development consists of the area surrounding St Giles-without-Cripplegate Church and the Thomas More Gardens to the west of the site. The contract for Phase II was awarded to Turriff Limited, however delays and labour disputes halted progress in the construction. Turriff eventually withdrew from the contract, which was taken over by John Laing and Son Ltd
