ST. BRIDE'S CHURCH, FLEET STREET
City of London
One of the most famous of Wrens City of London Churches the glory of St. Brides is the octagonal stepped spire which can be spotted peeking above the clusters of buildings on Fleet Street from many directions. Alas, a good view cannot be had of the church from close by. The spire was once 8 feet higher, but the top portion was lost in storm in the 1800s.
When it was built the Church stood high above the Fleet River. Wren took a great deal of trouble over the interior of the Church, but all was sadly lost during 1940 when the Church was hit during the Blitz. The interiors have been rebuilt in Wren style.
