St Brides Church, Fleet Street
September 8, 2016 | By Hirst-Conservation |
On Sunday 25th September at 11.00 am the service at St Brides Church, Fleet Street will be ‘Bright and Beautiful’, to celebrate the removal of the scaffold and unveiling of the newly cleaned interior.
St Brides, rebuilt after the great fire of London under the direction of Christopher Wren, was reconstructed after war time bombing during which time the foundations of six previous churches were discovered. The crypt, open to the public, displays 2000 years of the buildings history, and holds a medieval charnel house and ossuary. Hirst Conservation were commissioned to undertake cleaning and conservation works to the entire interior of the church, including the grid pattern of the steel superstructure, visible through differential static across the vaulted plaster ceiling, and conservation of east elevation wall painting and plaster statues.
