The Ven Luke Miller, Archdeacon of London, recently visited St Anne and St Agnes Church in the City of London, where he blessed the new spire and weathervane, which have been rebuilt following extensive restoration works carried out by Bakers of Danbury.
The Grade I Listed church dates from the 15th century. The church was restored by Sir Christopher Wren after the Great Fire of London and later survived the London Blitz.
The restoration work carried out by Bakers of Danbury included the extensive refurbishment of the tower and roof, together with external redecoration. The works were made possible by a grant from the National Heritage Memorial Fund.
Archdeacon Luke said of the blessing:
“I am glad to see St Anne and St Agnes Church looking so splendid, and thank and congratulate all those involved for making the restoration possible on all their hard work. I was delighted to be able to bless the church’s new spire and weathervane, which gleamed brightly in the summer sun, representing a new chapter in the life of this historic church.”
