Lost Wren churches – All Hallows Lombard Street

Another in the occasional series on churches built by Wren after the Great Fire of 1666 that have been lost  since.

All Hallows Lombard StAll Hallows Lombard Street was originally built in around 1053, and rebuilt between 1516 and 1544.  It was burnt down in the Great Fire of 1666,  and rebuilt by Wren in 1686-94, only to be allowed to fall into disrepair, and declared an unsafe structure and demolished in 1938-39, when the parish was merged with St Edmund the King. Only parish boundary markers survive at its former site.  Some of the fabric and furnishings survive in the church of All Hallows in  Twickenham, including the rebuilt tower.

    This is amazing. So many churches and so many lost. At least you have the history which is something. I wonder how many people care?
