City of London

St. Anne and St. Agnes, City of London

A very modest Wren church, unusually not faced in stone but left in brick. The interior was completed gutted in the War and was subsequently rebuilt to Wren's own plans. This means that, although a reconstruction, it probably looks more like Wren intended than a number of other churches which survive with all their Victorian embellishments intact.

A trio of famous Johns worshipped here, Milton, Wesley and Bunyan.

The church was due to be demolished after the War and it was only the vergeress of the church who saved it from being lost forever.

This is the "St Annes" in the Oranges and Lemons Rhyme.
