It has been a hallowed place in London for two thousand years and the current St Pauls rebuilt after the Great Fire in 1666 is perhaps London’s finest of all its buildings. The story behind it and the people who built it is remarkarkable and touches upon genius. Here we delve deeply into that story; what was and what could have been too.
