The Church of England built this parish around 1100. Nestled right in the heart of the city, its ruins are largely obscured by modern skyscrapers. In 1666 it endured extensive damage during the Great Fire of London. During the WWII Blitz of 1941, the church suffered a final blow. Blitz-target walls are a rare site and the Grade 1 status protect them from being demolished.
The church is still alive today as Londoners visit for quiet time and meditation. The space is a living monument serving as a reminder to the spirit of England and that a church exists beyond a building.
