St Michael, Cornhill, is a medieval parish church in the City of London with pre-Norman Conquest parochial foundation. The medieval structure was lost in the Great Fire of London, and replaced by the present building, traditionally attributed to Sir Christopher Wren. The upper parts of the tower are by Nicholas Hawksmoor. The church was embellished by Sir George Gilbert Scott and Herbert Williams in the nineteenth century.

Love the Blue door

Which carries on the theme of Blues
within the church.

Fantastic organ , with an unusual shape.

I am sure you will agree with me.
Simplicity and beauty can be found together.

  1. Great find and fantastic photos. Well done Anne. Keep well Diane xx

  2. Hello Anne, it's been such a long time since I have visited (I lost track of you somewhere along the way) but am glad to have found you again. Thank you for showing us this lovely little church. It seems like a hidden little gem in the midst of the city. I agree beauty and simplicity can be found together and complement each other also. We were in London in 2009 but it was too short a time to really explore. And it's a long way to come from Southern California, unfortunately!

  3. I like its outside decorations!

  4. What a lovely Church and exuding such a peaceful aura, the delicate shades of blue certainly help (my favourite colours).
    You certainly take excellent photographs Anne.
    Love Di.xx

  5. This church looks delightful. I am fond of visiting churches, they lead to many interesting discoveries.

  6. What a delightful church and such a wonderful ceiling. I love the simplicity of the colour scheme which highlights the beautiful stained glass windows.
    love di.x
    btw new post up if you'd like a quick peruse.... hope you're keeping well, all fine here xxx
