St Andrew Church Holborn;  with bluecoat pupils

The medieval St Andrew's survived the 1666 Great Fire of London, saved by a last minute change in wind direction, but was already in a bad state of repair and so was rebuilt by Christopher Wren anyway.   In what is his largest parish church, he rebuilt from the foundations (creating the present crypt) and gave the existing medieval stone tower (the only medieval part to survive) a marble cladding.

The organ is a 20th C instrument in an 18th C casing.   It was built by Mander Organs in 1989
