This image shows a stone plaque on the ground outside St Mary Somerset Tower, London, England. The plaque says: "The Church and Tower were redesigned and rebuilt under the direction of Sir Christopher Wren in 1695 following the Great Fire of London." St. Mary Somerset was a church in the City of London first recorded in the twelfth century. Destroyed in the Great Fire of 1666, it was one of the 51 churches rebuilt by the office of Sir Christopher Wren. The tower is located in Upper Thames Street, the body of the church being demolished in 1871. Sir Christopher Michael Wren PRS (20 October 1632 – 25 February 1723) is one of the most highly acclaimed English architects in history. He was accorded responsibility for rebuilding 52 churches in the City of London after the Great Fire in 1666, including his masterpiece, St. Paul's Cathedral, on Ludgate Hill, completed in 1710.
Location: Castle Baynard Street, London, England.
