Church of St Mary Woolnoth, King William Street, City of London EC3 - City of London

This church was built between 1716 and 1727 by Nicholas Hawksmoor on a tight site between Lombard Street and King William Street. In 1875-6 William Butterfield raised the chancel floor and removed the galleries, setting the carved fronts against the walls. The west side of the square plan church is dominated by a baroque tower. There is settlement in the tower causing cracks which need to be monitored. Elsewhere asphalt roofing needs to be repaired, along with the nave parapet to Lombard Street.
