NOTES: A third of the City's buildings were destroyed by aerial attack between September 1940 and March 1945. This church, built in Perpendicular Gothic style, dates from c.1450 and was one of the few churches to escape the Great Fire of London in 1666. It was gutted during the Blitz by enemy action in 1941. It was designated a Grade I listed building in 1950 and was fully restored in 1954.
