St Andrew Undershaft Church :: Visitors' Map of London :: A-Z Maps
St Andrew Undershaft ChurchWith its fine 15th century tower, this Perpendicular style church of 1520-32, is lucky to have been spared destruction by both the Great Fire of London and World War II bombs, though fine stained-glass windows were lost in an IRA bomb-attack in 1992 that destroyed the nearby Baltic Exchange.
Its name derives from the May Day tradition of erecting a Maypole, or Shaft, said to be higher than the tower, an event discontinued in 1517. Font of 1631, 17th century organ case and pulpit, monument to John Stow the 16th century antiquarian, author of 'Survey of London' whose quill pen is renewed annually by the Lord Mayor at a special service.
