In Pepys' footsteps

When I was at school I remember learning that there were a hundred churches in the City of London before the Great Fire of 1666. Then you start thinking: that can't be true, can it? I do recall, however, from my reading of the great diarist how often he mentions one. So, one gloomy November Sunday I set off to see how many sites I could find...

Church of St Nicholas Cole Abbey

Grade I listed building, built by Sir Christopher Wren. LinkExternal link
St. Nicholas Cole Abbey is a church in the City of London located on what is now Queen Victoria Street. Recorded from the twelfth century, the church was destroyed in the Great Fire of London in 1666 and rebuilt by the office of Sir Christopher Wren. The church suffered substantial bomb damage from German bombs during the London Blitz in the Second World War and was reconstructed by Arthur Bailey in 1961-2.
