Notes NOTES: The body of this church, built in 1686-1694, was demolished in 1871. The fittings of the church were removed to St Mary's, Britannia Street, Hoxton. The distinctive eight pinnacles of the remaining tower were removed after World War II following bomb damage. The tower was designated a Grade I listed building in 1950 and was restored by the City of London Corporation in 1956.
