Church of St Bride, Fleet Street, City of London EC4 - City of London

This Sir Christopher Wren church of 1671-8 was built on the site of an earlier church. The medieval crypts were excavated after World War II. The church has the tallest of all Wren spires, which is unique in form. Repairs to the spire were completed in 2014. In March 2015 the church was awarded a grant from the Listed Places of Worship Roof Repair Fund and work is complete. Further repair work and decoration has been carried out internally. The condition of external ashlar masonry, especially to the clerestory walls, remains poor. The clerestory windows are also in need of repair.
