St Paul, Covent Garden
St Paul, Covent Garden
Inigo Jones's church of 1631-35, dominated by its deeply-eaved Tuscan porticoed east end ("the handsomest barn in England") is, as we see it today, materially largely C18th/C19th. Thomas Hardwick added the stone facing in 1788-89 and returned after a fire in 1795 for further work. The red brick was not added until 1887-88 by A.J. Pilkington. Henry Clutton made alterations in 1878-82, including enlarging the side arches, removing the bellcote, and blocking some of the windows. The rusticated gateways are late C20th replacements of the originals. For all that, the essence of Jones's groundbreaking design endures. Grade I listed.
