    Product description
    Until the seventeenth century London boasted over a hundred churches. Most perished in the Great Fire of 1666 and thirty-five were not rebuilt. Over the next two hundred years a declining population, nineteenth century taste and major redevelopment within the City all contributed to the disappearance of a number of Sir Christopher Wren’s post-Fire churches. The Second World War brought further losses. This book, illustrated with black and white images, helps readers discover for themselves what remains of buildings whose towers and spires once graced the City skyline. Available at the special price of £3.00 (RRP £5.95).
