SIR CHRISTOPHER WREN 300 YEARS - ST PAULS CATHEDRAL
There has been a Christian church dedicated to St Paul on the same site in London since AD604. The first, made of wood, burnt down in 675. since then, there have been four others, all of which have at some time suffered damage from fire, conflict or neglect. In September 1666 the Great Fire of London destroyed the old St Pauls Cathedral, which had stood on the site for over 300 years. The great architect Sir Christopher Wren saw a rare opportunity. When the construction of Sir Paul's began in 1675, it was in 1708 when Wren was able to watch his son lay the final stone.
