CHRISTCHURCH, NEWGATE ST.
City of London
When it was built by Christoper Wren it was one of his most expensive churches. It was built on the site of the Franciscan's Greyfriars Church between 1677 and 1691. The tower and steeple, which dominate the ruins today are also Wren's but date to around 1703.
In 1940 the bomb hit the church and it was gutted entirely. It lay in ruins until the 1960s when the remains were shored up and the tower restored.
