City of London

St. Edmund, King and Martyr, City of London

This, not overly-attractive, Church is one of Wren’s least known City Churches. It is also an early one dating from 1670 and being finished around 1679. He did not seem to be happy with the result as he added the spire around 1707. The Wren interiors are entirely gone beyond some surviving woodwork as the Victorians took it upon themselves to completely renovate this Church including removing all the box pews and replacing them with choir stalls. At the same time three of Wren’s other churches were demolished and the parishes amalgamated with St. Edmund’s.
