St Helens Church
St Helen's Bishopsgate is one of the few ancient City churches to escape destruction in both the Great Fire of London and World War II although it did suffer severe damage by IRA bombs. On the establishment of an adjacent Benedictine nunnery in 1210, a wider and longer church was added to the existing Parish Church resulting in an unusual symmetry, the new northern nave, divided by arches and screen was for use by the nuns, the screen was removed after the nunnery was dissolved in 1538.
Features include a 15th century 'squint', 17th century sword rest, canopied pulpit, wooden bell turret and some fine 15th - 17th century monuments.
