St. Dunstan-in-the-East

The church was originally built in around 1100.

It was extended in 1391.

It's first repair took place in 1631.

In 1666 the church was severely damaged, requiring a patchwork of repair, carried out between 1668-1671.

Various repairs took place throughout the ages, until the church was almost destroyed in 1941, when it was hit by a German bomb.

The church was designated Grade I listed on January 4, 1950.

Following the war it was decided that the church would not be rebuilt, standing as a ruin until 1967 when the City of London Corporation took it over. It was turned into a public garden, which opened in 1971.
