Before the Great Fire of London in 1666 there were over 100 churches in the City of London which has an area of one square mile. The fire destroyed 89 of them. In 1670 an Act was passed that Christopher Wren could rebuild 51 of those churches. After the bombings of the Second World War and the terrorist attacks in the 1990s just 38 now remain.
St Dunstan in the East: There was a church built on this site during the Saxon times and restored by St Dunstan in 950AD. After the Great Fire it was rebuilt by Wren in 1697, the Tower of which still remains. The rest of the church was destroyed during WW2.
