Another of Sir Christopher Wrens three London churches not in the City. St James is a rather plain construction compared with other Wren churches, although it does have mostly original features.
It was constructed between 1672 and 1684 when it was consecrated. William Blake was baptised here in 1757 and early in the 20th Century Leopold Stokowski was the choirmaster before he became a famous conductor.
The church was badly damaged in World War II and the rebuilding has been done with a little less care than some of the other Wren churches in the City.
