City of London

St. Clement Eastcheap, City of London

A modest little church built by Wren in the 1680s. It has a very simple design which is carried through to the typically Georgian interiors. All the plainness helps to emphasise the rather elaborate 17th Century pulpit which is the church’s best feature.

Work on the interiors continued in the 1870s and then again in the 1930s. St. Clement escaped bomb damage during World War II and as such comes to us as one of the purest of the small Wren churches.

This is one of two possibilities for the "St Clements" in the Oranges and Lemons Rhyme.
