St George in the East Church, East London
St George in the East Church, East London
St. George in the East is situated immediately east of Whitechapel, between Stepney, Shadwell and Wapping. The church of St. George in the East with its 160 ft tower, was built in 1714-29 to the designs of Nicholas Hawksmoor, and created a separate parish from Stepney. In 1886 the churchyard was landscaped as a public garden. The interior of the church was severely damaged by incendiaries in May 1941, a temporary building serving the parish until being rebuilt in 1960.
