The plaque is huge and horizontal and very difficult to photograph in its entirety so we captured just the engraving of the church in its new location.

EC2, Aldermanbury

See St Mary Aldermanbury for the story of why there is a Wren church in Missouri, USA.

Around the wall of the sunken garden you can see a number of round holes. These were intended as nesting boxes for blue tits. They always appear to be unoccupied whenever we visit and we've been told that blue tits will not nest within 10 metres of another blue tit so: nice idea, failed in the execution.

There is a campaign to turn this church into "a memorial of national significance to commemorate the heroism and sacrifice of the citizens of London during the Second World War and in subsequent bombings."
