St. Bride

I went to see St. Bride at lunch-time today.   It’s not a church that I know at all well, tucked as it is on an alleyway behind the old Reuter’s building off Fleet Street.   The spire is particularly magnificent, built between 1701 and 1703 to a design that replicates the spire on the Warrant design for St. Paul’s.   The interior is an over-luxurious remodelling after catastrophic war damage.   In the churchyard, I spotted the tomb of Samuel Richardson:-
