St. Antholin's Spire

St. Antholin\'s Spire

The spire from one of Christopher Wrens city churches.

Location: Round Hill, Sydenham, SE26 4RG

Description: This is the resting place of the spire of St Antholins Church, which once stood in the City of London.

In 1829 a terrible storm damaged the tower and the upper part of the spire was removed and subsequently sold for 5 to Robert Harrild, a printer. He erected it in the garden of his property here, Round Hill House.

Following the original ancient churches destruction in the Great Fire of London in 1666, St. Antholin's church was rebuilt in 1688 and one of Sir Christopher Wren's finest City churches. St. Antholin was dedicated to St. Anthony of Egypt.

St. Antholin's was demolished in 1875 and many bodies were disinterred from the crypt and reburied at Brookwood Cemetery.
