Hawksmoor Churches viewed from the Shard

Here are a few photographs –  taken from the top of the Shard – featuring three of the six London churches wholly designed by Nicholas Hawksmoor (1661-1736). Hawksmoor was employed by Christopher Wren as a clerk from the age of about 18. In time he became one of the greatest masters of English Baroque architecture. All six of Hawksmoor’s London churches remain standing.  (Hawksmoor also collaborated with John James on two other London churches, one of which still survives.)
