Visit St Mary Aldermary

In the heart of the City of London, on a site that has been home to a church for more than 900 years, St Mary Aldermary was only partially destroyed by the Great Fire of 1666, and some elements of the foundations, walls, and tower still date from an earlier age.


Sir Christopher Wren's rebuild in 1679-82 - under the supervision of his deputy John Oliver - followed the style of the earlier church, originally funded through a legacy from grocer and Lord Mayor, Sir Henry Keeble, after his death in 1518.

Having escaped the Blitz virtually unscathed, the modern church is a very welcoming place, and was even serving tea and coffee, and selling early Christmas cards, when your author popped in last week. For more, see www.stmaryaldermary.co.uk
