The oldest church in London, England, founded in 675 C.E. (AD).

Several bodies were brought here after being beheaded at the Tower of London, including those of Bishop John Fisher and Lord Chancellor Thomas More who both opposed Henry VIII’s wish that Anne Boleyn be accepted as his wife.

William Penn, founder of the US state of Pennsylvania was baptised and attended school here.

John Quincy Adams, 6th president of the USA was married here.

The church was bombed in 1940 with only the tower and walls left. It was re-dedicated in the 1950’s.

    I live in London and Have not seen its beauty so wonderfully captured like this. In between mission to remote villages in Africa, I am going to start photographing its beauty. This is marvellous.
