WalkingSquares: St James Garlickhythe

St James Garlickhythe

Next time we visit London, I would like to do a trail just on the churches. I snapped this one during our Pepys trail, though I didn’t know its name until I reverse-searched it just now – my eye was caught from the other side of Upper Thames Street by the blue and gold clock. According to Wikipedia:

St James Garlickhythe is a Church of England parish church in Vintry ward of the City of London, nicknamed “Wren’s lantern” owing to its profusion of windows. Recorded since the 12th century, the church was destroyed in the Great Fire of London in 1666 and rebuilt by the office of Sir Christopher Wren. It is also the official church of eleven City livery companies.

  1. Hi Anabel – those churches will keep your feet-a-walking the leather off! Nicholas Hawksmoor’s churches alone would keep you enjoy the London air …

    It’s a great part of historic London – cheers Hilary
