St. Dunstan’s church is just 180 years old, but an earlier version dates from the 12th-century. It survived everything that history could throw at it, including riots, fires and the Great Fire of London, but had become so dilapidated by the 1820s that it was demolished during the widening of Fleet Street.
The so-called Giant’s Clock is named after the two giants who strike the bell every fifteen minutes. It even got a mention in Charles Dickens’ Barnaby Rudge.
