Banner within St Mary Abchurch
East, west-churches are best
Everyone knows there are lots of churches in the City of London. Those who paid attention at school may recall the total was approaching a hundred in the Middle Ages. Most were destroyed in the Great Fire and 34 were not rebuilt. Another 23 have disappeared over the centuries but that still leaves a lot. The Friends of City Churches arranged a Saturday walk around those still left. It was divided into two halves: those west of St Mary Abchurch, and those east. Two fascinating tours lead by expert guides- a great time was had by all!
Church of St Mary Abchurch
St Mary Abchurch is a Church of England church off Cannon Street in the City of London. Dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary, it is first mentioned in 1198-9. The medieval church was destroyed in the Great Fire of London in 1666, and replaced by the present building, built by Wren.
