City of London

St. Margaret Pattens, City of London

One of Wren’s neatest churches it has a tall spire in plain Portland Stone which still manages to dominate views from Aldgate and St.-Mary-at-Hill despite being hemmed in with modern buildings in most directions.

Indeed the approach the St. Margaret Pattens from Fenchurch Street is down a small and dingy alleyway which does not bode well for what turns out to be one of the nicer churches in the City.

The interior is crisp and clean with fine plasterwork and gilding contrasting with dark wood panelling.
