St Bride's Church
St Bride's Fleet Street, is dedicated to St Bridget, a 6th century Irish Saint. Of Saxon and Medieval origins the church was rebuilt by Wren 1670-84 following its destruction in the Great Fire of London - as described by Samuel Pepys in his famous diary, and then again after World War II bombing, it being re-hallowed in 1957. Wrens famous 'wedding cake' steeple is the highest of his City churches at 226 ft.
As a result of the bombing there is now a crypt museum relating to the history of St Brides; Roman, Saxon and Medieval finds uncovered during archaeological digs are shown in the unearthed and long forgotten crypts
Samuel Pepys was baptised here in 1663. Closely allied to the rise of the print industry on Fleet Street and regarded as the 'Journalists Church' though the newspaper industry has long since relocated to modern addresses.
