"In 1161 [the 'Old' Temple] was sold to the Bishop of London and the Templars' central convent moved half a mile or so south, where the brothers built the 'New' Temple at a fashionable riverside address on Fleet Street. Here they had access to the busy waterways of the Thames, useful when the fastest way to travel to and from the City was by boat. On the road side, the New Temple was perched directly on the main thoroughfare connecting the mercantile heart of the City with Westminster, where the palace and the towering abbey were a hub for royal and religious business." Jones, The Templars, (New York: Viking, 2017), 194.
