Situated right outside the Bank of England and adjacent to Mansion House and the Royal Exchange, this church is well known among architects and has survived several attempts to clear it away for redevelopment.
The church is said to have been founded originally by Wulfnoth, a Saxon noble, on the site of a Roman Temple to Concord.
The building was constructed by Nicholas Hawksmoor between 1716 and 1721.
The front is heavily rusticated and rises in one large tower (as if two towers have merged together) and finally separates into two small towers at the top.
The side entrance to the left of the church no longer leads to the crypt, but to Bank underground station.
The remains of the dead were moved to Ilford Cemetry in 1900.
