This destroyed church has become an enchanting hidden garden. This church has survived during its 900-year history, including the Great Fire of London in 1666. One of the last Blitz-damaged buildings left in the United Kingdom, overgrown with trees, ivy, and wall climbing flowers growing amongst the ruined arches, it’s a poignant living memorial to the horrors of the Blitz and a testament to the resilience of the City of London which survived it.
