Another in the occasional series on churches built by Wren after the Great Fire of 1666 that have been lost since …
St George Botolph Lane was originally built in around 1180. It was burnt down in the Great Fire of 1666, and rebuilt by Wren in 1671-6, using material from the old St Paul’s, only to be allowed to fall into disrepair, and declared an unsafe structure and demolished in 1904, when the parish was merged with St Mary-at-Hill.
The site of the church is visited on our “Lost Wren churches” themed special.
Further details of all our walks are available in the “Guided Walks” section of this web-site.
