"The Church in old times possessed the finest tower and spire within the limits of the City, and was a most conspicuous object in the beautiful view across the river from Bankside. It was destroyed in the Great Fire and not rebuilt, but portions of its wall are still to be seen in the fronts of houses at the north-west corner of the Churchyard. This is the most picturesque, perhaps, of all the City churchyards, so admirably described by Dickens in his Uncommercial Traveller."
