ST. BENET'S WELSH CHURCH
City of London
One of Wrens least changed City churches, St. Benets is known as the Welsh Church as it has been the meeting house of the Metropolitan Welsh Church since 1879. It is built in Dutch style with red brick and white quoins giving it a chirpy look.
The interior is much as Wren left it in the late 1600s with an elaborate 17th Century altar table and a number of 18th Century monuments dotted throughout. During the 1970s the entire church was redecorated following an arson attack in 1971 and regilded at a cost of some £50,000.
