St Michael Cornhill Church
The ancient Norman and Medieval church, destroyed in the Great Fire of 1666 was replaced by Christopher Wren 1670-7. In his design features Doric columns to create a classical style interior, while its fine tower - built later 1715-22 is a 'Gothick' imitation of that of Magdalen College Oxford. There is a font of 1672 in which the poet Thomas Gray was baptised in1716, and there are 16th century monuments to the Cowper family. The tower completed by Nicholas Hawksmoor houses a peal of 12 bells.
Restored by Gilbert Scott 1857-60. The church was fortunate to escape serious damage in World War II.
