St Dunstan in the East

Categories: Religion

A church was first built on the site in Saxon times. It was restored by St Dunstan in 950 AD. Badly damaged by the Great Fire, it was patched up and then a steeple by Wren was added in 1701. In 1817 it was rebuilt incorporating Wren's tower. The tower also survived the WW2 Blitz but not much else did. After the war it was decided not to rebuild the church. Instead the ruins have been turned into a charming public garden, opened in 1971.
