Open church: St Andrew Holborn

The largest of Wren’s surviving City churches, Grade I-listed St Andrew’s was built in 1684-90 to replace a medieval structure of Saxon origin that survived the Great Fire but then fell into decay. Gutted in the Blitz it was rebuilt in 1960-1 by Seely and Paget and became a guild church. This is a role devised in the early post-War years for City churches which, in an area that was by that point over-churched and under-populated, risked becoming surplus to requirements.
