    The Great Fire of devastated the centre of London, with the loss of old St. Paul's and 86 parish churches. This book looks at Wren's rebuilding of St. Paul's, as well as examining the other 51 parish churches which were reconstructed under his observation.5/5(1).   London: The City Churches by Nikolaus Pevsner, , available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide/5(6).

    The City of London provides local government and policing services for the financial and commercial heart of Britain, the 'Square Mile'.   I’ve only been to London once in my life and since I am getting on in years I’m not likely to be able to visit the beautiful city again. I envision the churches project as a coffee table book — I’d gladly pay for a copy to be posted here to America, but I would settle for the poem and the black-and-white photos in your wonderful blog.
