Church of St Margaret, Lothbury, City of London EC2 - City of London

Designed by Sir Christopher Wren, the church was built between1686 and1695. The form is a simple rectangle orientated north-south with a vestry to the east and a tower to the west. The south elevation is faced in Portland stone while the others are rendered brick between stone quoins. The church has contemporary fittings. The spire is in poor condition, the nave floor has settled, and the leaning tower is being monitored. Repairs to the spire are due to commence in 2018, with a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
