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. The tower was originally marked for demolition but due to the Hawksmoor finials it was retained by the City of London.
Wignall and Moore are currently working on site directly with the client/contractor to ensure that the designs harmoniously integrate with Wren’s original tower.
