Facts

  • An original church on this site was destroyed by the Great Fire of London, and was rebuilt by Sir Christopher Wren between 1686 and 1688 to its current design.
  • The name of the church derives from the area's former trade - pattens, a device manufactured in medieval times. A patten was worn under shoes to elevate the wearer several inches off the ground, enabling them to avoid the mud and sewage with which London streets used to be awash.
